    Extra beautiful

    Posted by Sandra from Mont-St-Hilaire on 8th Apr 2023

    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 !

    Espresso Shruti Box!!

    Posted by Sonja M. from Kingston, Ontario on 1st May 2021

    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.

    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

    Posted by Devin from Ottawa on 1st Jul 2018

    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.

    S1 Shruti box

    Posted by Peter from Scarborough on 4th Aug 2017

    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.
