    New baby, Gauri

    Hi, Mickey! Just letting you know my shruti arrived safe and sound yesterday afternoon. Thanks for all your support. Really enjoying the shruti, though - she sounds lovely, and I am learning how to drive her. Called her Gauri after the gold fabric on the bellows. Namaste, Kristi

    Wonderful instrument and store

    I had trouble deciding between the different shrutibox models, but chose the model S because of its warm tone and subtle overtones. I'm afraid I didn't get the name of the technician who helped me, but he was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful. A very satisfying experience all around.

    I bought my Shruti box one week ago and could not be happier. It has a beautiful warm drone sound. I was welcomed by " Mickey" who was very knowledgeable and helpful to me. Wonderful experience all around.

    Dear Sundeep Thank you for your interest. The Shruti arrived really quickly and very well packed. There are a couple of small marks on the wood that we did not see in the picture - but they do not detract from the soun quality. We love it !!! We are Bio Sonic Therapists [ Sound Healers ] and use the Shruti [ amongst many other things ] to help people rebalance and heal their own being, throug personal treatmet and workshops. We look forward to doing buisness with you again - and when we visit our friends in Toronto will will drop by. Have a great day Blessings
