Made from solid seasoned Burmese teak and hand polished in a natural matte finish; specifically chosen for their acoustic properties. They are fitted with the finest grade copper tip reeds to produce a clear, detailed and harmonious tone. Small variations in the wood grain and colour add to a unique individual character. Every detail of our instruments, including precision mechanical parts, have been developed and refined for function, beauty and tone. All fittings (plates) have been completed with brass, including the screws, a very nice enhancement.

BLEMISHED: Cosmetic scratches/repairs on the finish (of the Shruti box, result from shipping damage) The scratches/repairs are barely visible; this has no effect on the performance and playability of the instrument. We will go the extra mile and send you out pictures of the actual instrument prior to shipping so you can approve the order, assuring that there will be no surprises.
