The quality is much better thant many other shruti boxes I have seen. The price is a bit high, but we do get extra beauty for the extra money. I would recommend !
I am absolutely thrilled and IN LOVE with my Shruti Box. The quality is exceptional, the sound is beautiful... I'm so excited to experiment with it!
Beautiful sounding instrument.
Ordering from Kala Kendar was one of the easiest online shopping experiences I’ve ever had. Not only was the checkout easy and straight forward, but I was able to contact Mickey at the store in Toronto multiple tones over both email and phone to talk about which instrument would be best for me. He was able to hear what my intention is for using this instrument and make recommendations. This shruti box is perfect for me, and has an excellent sound. It’s warm and has a wide dynamic range that is easily controlled and manipulated. The bag is sturdy and will travel well. I love my instrument.
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
Hi ! I already received the Shruti box ! I LOVE IT VERY VERY MUCH!!! It sounds so great !!! Thank you for everything !!!
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.
The instrument is great. However the clasp broke the first day
