Like all shrutiboxes, the MKS / MM Triple is very reliable and extremely easy to handle. The range stretches over three octaves from G2 to F#5. Thus is becomes possible, e.g. when playing individual notes or entire chords of the basic octave starting from G2, to play octaves, fifths and fourths from both higher octaves simultaneously, simulating the basic principles of the harmonic series in this way. Any other imaginable combination of the 36 available chromatic notes can be played as well, of course.

Needs firm holding or wide foot plates when played with Bowring foot pedal. Suitable foot plates are available from India Instruments on request.

Manufacturer / Supplier

Our Monoj Kumar Sardar (MKS) / Musician's Mall (MM) shrutiboxes come from a manufactory in the rural surroundings of Kolkata. Monoj Kumar Sardar and Musician's Mall are two instrument dealers who put their respective brand labels on the shrutiboxes and then deliver them to us.

MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR & BROTHERS is a third generation manufactory-like instrument making and trading business in the old city of Kolkata. The four namesake brothers are all skilled instrument makers, each specialising in different instruments. At Monoj Kumar Sardar, you can get almost everything that is made in India - partly from their own production, partly from suppliers. We have been working with Monoj Kumar Sardar since India Instruments was founded in 1994.

MUSICIAN'S MALL is a brand of the far-flung Bhargava family of Indian instrument dealers. In 2014, the Bhargavas took over the instrument shop of the Ali Akbar College of Music in California and gave it the new name Musician's Mall. Since then, they have been selling commissioned instruments under this name. Since 2023, we have also been sourcing the shrutiboxes formerly supplied exclusively by MKS from Musician's Mall.


The 36 chromatic notes are arranged in three rows on top of one another. The top row features the low octave from G2 to F#3, the middle row the octave from G3 to F#4 and the bottom row the high octave from G4 to F#5. They correspond to the bass, male and female registers of the harmonium.

In India, this shrutibox model is tuned in equal temperament to Western standard pitch with a = 440 hertz. However, due to lower average air temperatures, it may sound slightly higher at a = 441 to 442 hertz in Europe. The difference is so small, that even trained ears do not necessarily notice it. Nevertheless the difference may create problems in studio productions or when playing together with instruments with a tuning that can not easily be adjusted. Therefore we offer manual tuning to a = 440 hertz (or any other reference pitch close to that) on request.
