It arrived in perfect order and I'm very happy with it. Thanks for following up.
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
Dealing with Kala Kendar means dealing with professionals who really know their stuff. Their friendly helpfulness makes shopping there a pleasure. And of course the instruments are top quality.
It's excellent! Fantastic instrument! Thank you kindly.
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.
Thank you for the fast service and contact through the phone. Customer service is awesome.
Thanks, the Shruti box S1 sounds wonderful. I am glad I met you as I've needed a strong contact for Indian music in the region. Your expertise is greatly appreciated.
