Like all shrutiboxes, the Monoj Kumar Sardar Triple is very reliable and extremely easy to handle. The range stretches over three octaves from A2 to G#5. Thus is becomes possible, e.g. when playing individual notes or entire chords of the basic octave starting from A2, 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.

Features

36 chromatically tuned notes from A to g#'' (A2 to G#5 in scientific terms); frame made of solid teak wood; surfaces with silk mat synthetic varnish; side parts made of laminated wood; feet, handle and latch made of metall; valves made of plastic; bellows made of cardboard with leather blockings; including sturdy bag.

General Info

Shrutiboxes are not always tuned to Western a = 440 Hertz. In many cases they are set slightly higher to a = 442 Hertz. However, bigger variations up or down can occur as well. This can cause problems in playing together with Western instruments with fixed tuning (e.g. piano). IF YOU INTEND USING YOUR SHRUTIBOX IN A CONTEXT WHICH REQUIRES EXACT TUNING ACCORDING TO A SPECIFIC WESTERN STANDARD, PLEASE MENTION SO IN YOUR ORDER! We'll be glad to select or tune your shrutibox according to your requirements.

Manufacturer / Supplier

MONOJ KUMAR SARDAR & BROTHERS is a relatively large-scale manufacturer in the heart of Calcutta looking back on a rich tradition of three generations. It is run by four brothers, all of them trained craftsmen specialising in different aspects of instrument making. They mainly make sitars, tanpuras, esrajs, dilrubas, harmoniums and shrutiboxes. But the eldest brother and manager Monoj Kumar will get you every other instrument that is manufactured in India as well. Due to our long-term co-operation with Monoj Kumar Sardar since 1994, we receive instruments with a high quality level in terms of sound, workmanship and materials. Today Monoj Kumar Sardar's quality can well compete with other renowned brands like Hemen and Hiren Roy for string instruments or Pakrashi, Paul and Bina for harmoniums.

Tuning

The 36 chromatic notes are arranged in three rows on top of one another. The top row features the lowest octave from A2 to G#3, the middle row the middle octave from A3 to G#4 and the bottom row the high octave from A4 to G#5. These three octaves correspond to the bass, male and female registers of the harmonium.
