SHRUTIBOX MEDIUM VERSION BY MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR - TONAL RANGE c - c'
TARANG offers a small, a mdium and a larger sized Shrutibox model by the manufacturer Monoj Kumar Sardar. 13 chromatically tuned notes from c to c' (or C3 to C4 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. The larger bellows volume of the medium version provides a more stable sonorous sound than on the smallest medel. Thus the sound will be more consistent. A more stable sound is also achieved when several valves are open. The frame of the smalest and the biggest models are made of solid wood whereas the bellows wings are made of laminated wood.whereas the bellows wings of this medium version are also made of solid 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.
TUNING IN 432 HERTZ
Tuning to 432 hertz we have as standard without extra charge only the large Shrutibox Paloma and the large Shrutibox v. Monoj Kumar Sardar available. For the other shrutiboxes we can make you an offer for an extra charge for the conversion. Just ask for it.
