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!

Very nice drone.
One complete octave that allows to be played with different instruments with different scales.
Sometimes, if played with more than one note or a complete chord, it needs more pressure to the sound be eared perfectly.
