The sitar is a plucked stringed instrument predominantly used in Hindustani classical music, where it has been ubiquitous since the Middle Ages. Artists such as Ravi Shankar have popularized this instrument around the world. It derives its resonance from sympathetic strings, a long hollow neck and a gourd resonating chamber.
Sitar has a varying number of strings from 17 to 23. It has three to four playing strings and three to four drone strings. The approach to tuning is somewhat similar to other Indian stringed instruments. These strings are plucked with a wire finger plectrum called Mizrab. There are also a series of sympathetic strings lying under the frets. These strings are almost never played but they vibrate whenever the corresponding note is sounded.
