About this Concert Shruti Box, Rosewood Colour – No. 216
This Concert Quality Shruti Box has a superb sound quality and sustain. It packs a punch in it's considerably small size. Consider this - the largest side is only about 13 inches!
It's made by Harmoniumwala of Calcutta. He pays complete attention to detail and is probably the best Shruti Box maker in the world. And then, we double check it for all the specifications.
The exact origins of Shruti Box are not known but it can be traced back to at least 60 years. It's a modification of Indian Harmonium, which was itself a modification of Western Harmonium.
The body frame of this Shruti Box has been made with Teak which is the same wood used in some top quality harmoniums and brings out a "warm" tone from the box. The reed-board also uses teak to minimise vibration. The bellow wings are made with very light laminated wood, so that their weight doesn't slow down the sustain or pumping. Attention to every detail is paid so that the Shruti Box produces the best sound.
The Shruti Box is finished with the tasteful colours and accessories that meet international stadards.
We would especially like to mention about the long sustain provided by this Shruti Box. The sound of this Shruti Box will be very consistent and sonorous even when the bellow movements are not very regular and it will keep producing a consistent warm sound for quite some time even after the bellow movement has stopped.
The Shruti Box is very easy to play. All you have to do is:
a) release the both - front and back - bellows
b) turn the white covers sideways, to play single drone or by combining many
c) continuously pump the bellow which is opening out from top with a single hand
Thats it! If you follow the above steps, you Shruti Box will startresonating with warm notes selected by you. Volume can be controlled by the pumping speed.
This Shruti Box is sold with C3 to C4 tuning. However, you can also order a Shruti Box from A#2 to A#3 or a Shruti Box from G2 to G3. The chromatic scale is based on A440 concert pitch. The Shruti Box comes with a snug-fit laptop style shoulder bag.
THE QUALITY CHECK: All our Shruti Boxes go through a strict quality check before dispatch. Shruti Boxes are checked for long sustain, air leakages, tuning and tonal quality and finish. We photograph each item before shipping it out and can also send you a video of playing the Shruti Box that you are buying before it's dispatched to you.

The product arrived quickly and the rosewood is beautiful - it looks like a jet set Caribbean red cherry. It's deeper and shinier that in the photos.
The construction is average, with some frayed plastic at edges of the chord covers and a little roughness, but that just really makes it look like it's well used.
The sound is pretty and can be quite loud. All in all, worth the cost.

I just received the box ... my first thoughts with minimal playing:
- the service is awesome, arrived very quickly and securely
- the packing is awesome, MUCH better than expected
- the carrying case is unpadded and feels cheap
- the high C note isn't very live - the reed feels a little dead, maybe use will liven it up, it may need cleaning
- I would have liked SOME information with the instrument, a simple guide, the tuning, any basic repairs, or a website or document where I can find those online - it didn't even tell me it's C tuning
... this si all in advance of using it for a while and getting to know it, so this is just the Out-Of-Box experience.
