Ref. N6280 - IH

Shruti Box / Sruti Box - Chromatic model - Low G to G The Shruti Box is part of the Harmonium family and plays a similar role to that of Tampoura in Indian music, that is to say it produces a drone (= a fixed note) serving as a base for a piece. In addition to Indian music, the Shruti Box can be used as a continuous bass for all types of music, including folk, traditional and medieval music. The wooden case contains a set of metal reeds. A system of valves makes it possible to choose the note or notes that one wishes to hear, and thus to compose chords. To get the air into the instrument and play the drone, simply release the front and back covers with the locking hooks and then slowly and smoothly operate the bellows with your hand. This chromatic model makes it possible to play all the notes of the Bass Ground to the Ground of the upper octave, including the alterations, on an equal temperament. The timbre and volume of each note are adjustable by playing on the inclination of the flaps.
