THE SITAR is an Indian musical instrument widely used in. A sitar is a plucked string instrument. It is comprised of seven strings that are plucked by the artiste. The strings are tuned by the artiste using the tuning pegs at one extreme end of the instrument. An investigative study has been carried out on the tones emitted by each of the seven strings. The study was carried out using the recorded samples of each string plucked individually and studying their spectrograms and power spectra. The sound was recorded using the SONY IC recorder ICD – UX533F and the spectrograms and FFT graphs were obtained using the audio mixing software iZotope RX 6. The results obtained appear promising, and it would be worthwhile to carry out an in-depth study. Particularly with regard to the interaction of the vibrating strings with the curved bridge. Details of the experimental setup and a few results are described in the paper.
