SHRUTIBOX 3 OCTAVES BY MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR - TONAL RANGE A# - a''
TARANG offers a special Shrutibox model by the manufacturer Monoj Kumar Sardar which has a tonal range of rows of 36 chromatic semitones, which can be opened separately and thus can be combined in whatever way you like. The 3 Octaves are related to the male, bass and female registers of a Harmonium; A# - a'' (A#2 - A5 in scientific terms). The deep octave from A2 to G#3 is positioned on the top, below there is the medium octave from A3 to G#4 and the third row is the high octave from A4 to G#5. This Shrutibox is especially for professional musicians and Sound Therapists. Thus is becomes possible, e.g. when playing individual notes or entire chords of the basic octave starting from A2, to play octaves, fifths and fourths from both higher octaves simultaneously, simulating the basic principles of the harmonic series in this way. Any other imaginable combination of the 36 available chromatic notes can be played as well, of course. The larger bellows volume of the big belows provides a very stable sonorous sound. Thus the sound will be very consistent even when the bellows movements are irregular and it will go on resonating for a while on its own after the bellows movements have stopped. A stable sound is also achieved by slow and even pumping when several valves are open. The frame is made of solid wood whereas the bellows wings are made of laminated wood.

The Shrutibox models offered by us are tuned in India to the western standard A 440 Hertz. In our climatic conditions, the tuning is at a minimum higher 441 - max. 442 Hertz. Even a trained ear is not necessarily able to hear this and most of our musician clients can accept this minimal higher tuning. However, with instruments whose tuning can not be easily adapted, problems may arise. If this is the case, please let us know. If necessary, we can tune a Shrutibox to 440 Hertz for an extra charge. Other tunings which are far away from the 440 Hertz, such as the often requested 432 Hertz cannot be tuned. Sometimes we have this tuning on stock, if not it has to be ordered in India, In that case thewaiting period is several months. Just ask us if you would like to have a Shrutibox on that tuning. Maybe we have it on stock.
