This is a weblog…

It is a casual magazine about sitar making, India and I.

This means that I try to contribute an article weekly, though this may vary from daily to monthly. Depending on the time I can spend at that moment.

The most recent article will always be on top when entering the blog; you can easily find it under Home.

The second article “Random Archive Post” is generated automatically at random from the archive. It changes everytime you hit the home page.

The third article in a row (under Home) is the second last in time, dropped down to make place for the “Random Archive Post”.

  1. Pegs and strings are available at Amazon. Also the nibs that go into the end of the sympathetic pegs, the eye hole pieces that go into the neck for the lower strings. And the lotus pegs too. Just about anything you need can be found there except for the inlay material. I’m still looking for that.I found a decent price on frets from a company called The Indian Market. (A full set of 20 frets was $64). Hope this helps.

  2. Please help. I am attempting to build a sitar and I can not find the proper inlay material anywhere on the net. I’ve tried everything I can think of. Can anybody help, please, please, please. Many thanks in advance.
