Thankyou very much for your replies, you're teaching, opening my eyes to things I never knew of or would have even thought about in the initial post. Maybe because all instruments are individual, as are the musicians that play them, different things will work better or be more suited to each one (just my thoughts, could be and am probably wrong). It's all good stuff (hope I'll see a real Rudra Veena/Vina and tuning beads too one day)
Best wishes

I found some elephant tuning beads http://www.activemusician.com/item--MD.STMP-EB
Most of their sitar stuff kinda junky, but the bone beads look pretty nice! Don't know whether or not they ship to the UK though...

I thought that the elefinks were cute, until I bought a pair, put them on and now I can't wait to take them off.

Too tall, hang up on everything, fall over...etc. :evil:
