Made from seasoned Teak wood and a two-part counter-balanced bellow system, allowing for maximum air flow.  Two Scale options C to C or G to G (one full octave), giving our customers full customization.   These are perhaps some of the best Shruti boxes available.  Features copper-tipped reeds for a full and well rounded tone with subtle harmonics (often described by our customers as a sweet and warm sound). Specially made for Kala Kendar by a private maker in Kolkata. 

Designed in Canada, built in India.  It's about time we started creating instruments specifically for our North American customers.

    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

    Beautiful instrument. Nice sustain. I would highly recommend the S1 Professional. It's worth paying the additional fee to have the instrument tuned to A440 if you plan to play along with western instruments. Very happy with my purchase. Thank you, Kala Kendar!

    The quality and sound of this shruti box is excellent and it was well worth spending the extra money. I love the beautiful rich sound and the staff at Kala Kendar were friendly and helpful in making the right decision.
