This Shruti Box is an M1 model in C Octave with A432 tuning that comes with a Black Canvas Padded Handle and Shoulder Strap Bag.
The Shruti Box is a simple hand-pumped reed instrument which provides a rich drone background or slightly pulsating constant chord to support singing and musical exploration on any instrument.
They are constructed in India, with strict specifications. The craftsmanship on these instruments are of the highest quality! The reeds are made by some of India’s leading manufacturers.
They are designed by Stefan Cartwright in Wales, UK. When he receives them from India, each instrument is repeatedly tuned, fine tuned and each reed is voiced before shipping. This process effectively sets the pitch so the tuning is fixed and should be stable for years of use.
The Shruti reed board is set up like a standard western octave chromatic scale. If you’re looking at a keyboard, the white notes would be on the bottom and the black notes (sharps & flats) on top.
