Quality Strings
Anonymous 22.04.2016
Having played sitar for ten years I have to say these are the ideal strings for me! I had trouble with the normal steel strings scratching the nickel/silver frets on my new sitar but the silver-plating on the string makes all the difference for this.

The price is a little high compared to other strings, and I still can't find anywhere to buy reels of silver-plated steel, so keeping your sitar strung with these is pricey! (especially if you play a lot and frequently break the baaj string).

Generally, the tone is great - though the better the instrument you have, the more likely you will actually notice a difference. I wouldn't recommend these for low quality sitars for this reason (unless money isn't a concern, but then you might as well buy an amaaazing sitar).

If you are looking for the same product but need a better price then consider getting the pyramid 7 which don't include the taraf (sympathetic strings) - Much cheaper! (You will find it here on Thomann)

German Quality

Habe festgestellt, dass sogar indische Instrumentenhändler genau diese Pyramid-Saiten im Angebot haben, mit dem Vermerk "German Quality". Nur wird das dann für indische Verhältnisse ziemlich teuer, und wenn man nicht in Indien ist, bestellt man doch lieber in der geographischen Nähe.

Mir hat dieser Saitensatz dazu gedient, eine antiquarisch gekaufte Sitar wieder spielbereit zu kriegen. Die rostigen alten Saiten gegen die neuen auszutauschen, war eine schweißtreibende Arbeit, aber durch die hervorragende Qualität eben doch um einiges leichter.
