SUR-O-JHANKAR is a traditional, little known small tanpura maker from Calcutta. His tanpuras are exceptionally big and have an especially full, dark and earthy sound. Their plainly decorated, nearly black appearance seems very traditional and slightly archaic compared to modernly styled instruments. We carry only female tanpuras of Sur-O-Jhankar, because of their unique sound quality.
Its special feature is a very light construction with relatively thin walls. This adds a unique warmth and dark earthiness to its powerful and carrying sound which is also rich in overtones. Material and workmanship are of the highest quality. Its dark colour and yellow gourd give it a fairly traditional look. Special Order only, 6 - 8 weeks.
