SHRUTIBOX MADE OF TEAK WOOD BIG VERSION - TONAL RANGE c - c'
In addition to the excellent small Teak Wood Shrutibox TARANG offers a big version that leaves nothing to be desired concerning workmanship, the use of materials and functioning. Also, the warm, powerful and balanced sound is convincing. 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. It consists of solid teak wood and impresses with its classy waxed surface which shows the natural grain of the wood to its fullest advantage and gives the instrument an elegant appearance. The pumping capacity of this bigger Shrutibox is even more than the big version of the Monoj Kumar Sardar Shrutibox. The larger bellows volume and also its construction 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 4 valves are open. the loudness of the Shrutibox can easiely adjusted from bold loud to very light. For accompanying overtone singing and any other sensitive sounds we absolutely recommend this large version of the Shrutibox by Paloma.

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.
