We have professionally setup the Maharaja Musicals Electric Sitar with strings of specific gauges and materials so that the below given traditional tuning is achieved. Please note that your Sitar may loose tuning while in transit to you or if left unused for some time. Here is some help to start tuning your sitar. We are trying to tune the sitar in the traditional Kharaj Pancham - Ravi Shankar style, in the key of C. Please have a chromatic tuner handy.


Tuning the 7 Main Strings

We start from the main string most further away from the tuning pegs, so if the Sitar's string side is facing you, the 1st string would be the right most string.


1st String - Ma - F  (An octave below Middle-C)
2nd String - Sa - C (An octave below Middle-C, below the F of 1st string)
3rd String - Pa - G (Below the C of 2nd string)
4th String - Sa - C (Two octaves below Middle-C, below the G of 3rd String)    
5th String - Pa - G (one octave above the 3rd string, above the F of the 1st String) 
6th String - Sa - C (Middle C, above the G of 5th String)
7th String - Sa - C (one octave above Middle C, above the C of 6th String) 


Tuning the 13 Sympathetic Strings


Normally we tune the sympathetic strings to the same scale of the music or raga that you are playing. If you are a beginner, don't bother much about tuning these strings.

    I am truly in love with this Sitar

    Posted by Acea on May 25, 2014

    For the beginner of the incredible world of Indian music, this Sitar will serve you well. I am impressed by the quality of the sitar, of the hard-shell case, and I am especially in love with the guidebook, "How to Play Sitar," which is included. Know this, that you will be embarking upon a journey of learning Sitar, but also of learning a little Hindi and plenty of the Indian culture. The Sitar is a harmonious instrument that plays with itself. Indian music itself is an anomoly, and will change your life forever! The extras that they send are very useful. I had accidentally broken a sympathetic string in my attempt to tune, and they have sent plenty of back-ups. It was simple to restring (with care and a little learning, of course). Do not be discouraged if the Sitar feels light in your hands at first. As he/she begins to become accustomed to you, the weight will be perfect. Enjoy your journey!
