(I hope this hasn't been covered in previous threads....checked and couldn't find anything....)


Does anyone have information regarding gauges/types of metal and a possible sources for replacements of Tarab/Sympathetic strings?
Hints/tips on replacement technique greatly appreciated :wink:

I knew I would have to tackle this job sooner or later.

Thanks in advance!

try any steel electric guitar string at the size of .12inches,, thats 12 gauge.....i hope this helps. the strings are about 75 cents each but its well worth it because they wont rust easily like indian strings, so its worth the 10-$15 you would end up spending changing all the strings.
