Sitar Strings

La Bella Sitar Strings
Large, fretted long-necked lute, a prominent instrument of the classical music of the northern and central regions of the South Asian subcontinent, including modern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh and with extensions into Afghanistan and Nepal. The name 'sitar' is an Urdu transcription of Persian sihtar, Persian being the court language of north India from the 13th century to the 19th. It did not become standard in India until the instrument began to reach its present form in the 18th century. Courtesy of New Grove DMI 1995.
