SHRUTIBOX BIG VERSION BY MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR - TONAL RANGE G - g
TARANG offers a small, medium and a larger Shrutibox model by the manufacturer Monoj Kumar Sardar. 13 chromatically tuned notes from G to g (or G2 to G3 in scientific notation). Each of the twelve semitones can be used as a keynote and combined with a fifth or fourth above or below it to create a full, sustaining overall sound. With the low G as keynote, the Shrutibox Monoj Kumar Sardar large G is particularly well suited for accompanying lower singing voices such as mezzo-soprano, alto, baritone and bass. For many instrumentalists, too, the lower register and warmer sound offer attractive possibilities for use.
The larger bellows volume of the bigger version 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.
