SHRUTIBOX SMALL VERSION BY MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR- TONAL RANGE C - c
TARANG offers a smaller, a larger and a medium sized Shrutibox model by the manufacturer Monoj Kumar Sardar. All of them have a tonal range of 13 chromatic semitones from C to c each, which can be opened separately and thus can be combined in whatever way you like. The smallest model with the measurements 33 x 25 x 8 cm has the usual standard size. The small Shrutibox is especially recommended for travelling because of its mobility. The volume of the bellows is smaller than that of the large and the medium Shrutibox model. But with a little practice you can produce a quite steady tone. When opening more then 1 valve for playing chords the volume of the air might be not enough to produce a steady sound. That's why, if you want to use the instrument for accompanying overtone singing, we would like to recommend you the larger model by MKS. For the accompany of louder and dynamic music or vocal it will be still an excellent Shrutibox. The frame is made of solid wood whereas the bellows wings are made of laminated wood.

If you want to use the Shrutibox together with western instruments that have a fixed tuning which cannot be adjusted to the slightly higher tuned Shrutibox, please let us know when ordering and inform us of the exact tuning pitch you require. The Shrutibox is often not tuned to the western standard tuning pitch A with 440 Hertz, but a little higher, to 442 Hertz. The difference can in some cases also be somewhat bigger either up or down. When the instrument is being played together with other instruments, some problems might arise.
