Description

Balanced and warm sound

This slightly larger shrutibox convinces with its warm and full sound. Due to the larger frame, the shrutibox has an increased bellows volume - so the air supply can be dosed very precisely. Compared to smaller models, there are more possibilities to vary the volume: from evenly delicate to persistently powerful. An ideal instrument for improvisations, for sound therapy or for vocal accompaniment.

The Shrutibox is easy to play

Simply stand it up and open it, operate the bellows from one side and open the individual keys on the other side as desired. The sound can be varied by the intensity of the air supply and by opening or closing the flaps. Tip: The small shruti box can be played well while dancing, because it is light and handy.

How the Indian instrument works

The shrutibox (surpeti) is an instrument that originated in India and is played by a hand-operated bellows. The instrument is similar to the Indian harmonium, but without keys. The sound is produced by fine metal tongues inside the shrutibox, which are vibrated by the passing air. The individual tones or chords are produced by opening the corresponding keys. By the way, shruti simply means octave.
