Tuning sarod to G

Post by csbala » Wed Jan 09, 2013 12:42 pm

I need to accompany some singers on the sarod. Since the pitch they are singing is at G#, the only way I have been able to make this work is by making my PA string as the SA and tuning it to G#. I make the SA string the MA and the lower Sa string the PA. I don't use the normal MA string and restrict myself to three strings.
has anybody experimented with thicker strings to make a "normal" sarod be tunable to a G# scale?
Thanks in advance,

It could be possible with thicker strings.

Look this video of partho sarothy. The Sa is G#.
