Parts of Sitars

Avoid any thoughts that the sitar is a giant Indian guitar. Both have necks and strings; the similarity ends there. The hollow neck (dandi) of a sitar is crafted from tun or teakwood. The main resonator (tumba) is carved from a large seasoned gourd (kaddu ka tumba). There may be an additional, smaller, wood gourd (lakadi ka tumba) attached to the neck. A series of arched metal frets (parda) are tied to the neck and their positions may be adjusted to alter the pitch. With 16 to 18, or more, strings the sitar neck and peg box is a busy place. There are two sizes of tuning pegs (kunti) on the sitar, corresponding to different strings. The degree of decoration on the tuning pegs, among other things, is an indication of the class of instrument. In general, the fluted and lotus carved tuning pegs denote a higher quality instrument. The larger pegs, on the peg box, are for the main playing strings (bada). The large pegs on the side of the neck are for the drone strings (chikari). The main strings run over the top of the arched metal frets. Each chikari string is held above the frets by its own bone chikari post (mogara). The smaller pegs, on the side of the neck, are for the sympathetic strings (tarak or chota). The sympathetic strings run inside the hollow neck, out through bone grommets (taraf mogara) in the face of the neck and under the frets. As the strings pass over the wood sound board (tabkadi) they pass over one of two bone bridges. The main and chikari strings rest on the main bridge (ghoraj or bada ghoraj). While the sympathetic strings rest on a smaller sympathetic bridge (taraf ka ghoraj or chota ghoraj); both bridges are movable. Just past the bridges, there are usually one to three tuning beads. These may be in the form of eggs, swans, elephants, or other animals. Some sitars may have a brass end plate to secure the strings to the gourd’s base. Others simply have a bone post called the ‘tardami mogara,’ which translates as the jasmine blossoms that hold the strings.
