Indian Instrument strings

We offer a variety of sitar string sets for your needs. All sets will fit either style of tuning. Check back frequently as we're getting  more brands in all instrument types in soon.

Individual strings ~ Surbahar and other instrument sets

Sitar strings pyramid

The 678/22 Pyramid  sitar string set was developed 10 years ago especially for us with special alloys and tensile strength to satisfy the demands of many sitar players. Due to the extra MA and SA strings this set meets the requirements of most common tuning styles.

Pyramid sitar strings have consistently proved to be the very best music wire available along with our own Rain City Music wire that is supplied by the same people who make the strings used on Hiren Roy sitars.
