Like all shrutiboxes, the Musician's Mall double is very reliable and extremely easy to handle. The range stretches over two octaves from G2 to G4. Thus is becomes possible, e.g. when playing individual notes or entire chords of the basic octave starting from G2, to play an octave, fifths and fourths from the higher octave simultaneously, simulating the basic principles of the harmonic series in this way. Any other imaginable combination of the 26 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

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 26 chromatic notes are arranged in two rows on top of one another. The top row features the low octave from G2 to G3 and the bottom row the octave from G3 to G4. They correspond to the bass and male 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.
