Nice traditional instrument!

Asterios, 03.12.2018
I like folk and traditional instruments (I have bought many from Thomann!) I've bought this Indian Shruti box to use it as a sound effect when playing music live, for vocal training and for meditation purposes! You can use it to play single notes or chords (13 chromatic keys from c to c')
The sound production (air) reminds a very simple accordion!
Let's see some pros & cons!
Pros:
*Nice note sustain (useful for drone-pads!)
*It comes with a metal handle (better than the plastic one that was used on previous model!)
* Comes with a bag!

Cons:
*It's not so responsive always! Sometimes, some keys, don't have fast response and you have to wait some seconds to hear the sound (that's why I put 4/5 stars!)
* A footswitch option (pumping air) could be useful, so you can play the Shruti Box, alone, along with guitar or another instrument!

All in all, a nice Indian traditional instrument from Thomann!

great effect

Friesemuth, 24.06.2018
As an effect definitely too expensive, but I'm really happy with the results.

I use the Shruti on various studio projects in the folk and traditional area. Mostly with the tonic and fifth of the piece and let it go through.
This makes the whole thing more low-end and sounds fuller for me.

Generally, the little Shruti comes down amazingly deep!

The processing can only say that the plastic handle up unfortunately does not look so beautiful - but its purpose fully.
The instrument smells pretty strong of glue and in some places is not so nicely processed. Sonically there are no restrictions.

The included bag is pretty ridiculous. BUT I see no reason to replace it ... a shruti is not an instrument in my opinion, which must be protected with 3cm foam. The bag is made of nylon and has two handles. - Running.
