Zitar

* Zitar is a five stringed electric sitar
* Created by Niladri Kumar (Official Website : http://www.niladrikumar.com/)
* Unlike sitar, which works on physics of resonance created by the sympathetic strings, in Zitar there are no such sympathetic strings
* Just like an electric guitar, the pick up on the Zitar helps amplify the sound.
* In summary, the zitar is the miniature or travelling sitar and with some changes to turn it into an electric instrument
