Shruti Box Saraswati - Scaled with A4 on 432Hz 

A high quality concert instrument with particularly large bellows and a full, carrying sound. Gentle movement of the bellows is enough to keep the sound stable, even with several levers opened.

Each instrument is individually hand-crafted and might differ somewhat from our description/photos.

Monoj Kumar Sardar & Brothers
Monoj Kumar Sardar & Brothers is a large-scale manufacturer in the heart of Calcutta looking back on a rich tradition. The manager Monoj Kumar will get you every instrument that is manufactured in India - ranging from sitars, tanpuras and harmoniums to folk instruments and violins. Due to our co-operation with Monoj Kumar Sardar of several years, today we receive instruments that can compare with renowned brands any time because of their reliably high manufacturing and good tone quality.


THE SHRUTI BOX 
The Shruti box, also called surpeti, is a perfect accompaniment for modal music, improvisation, voice work, overtone singing, music therapy and all kinds of Indian music. It gives a full, supporting drone sound and is sturdy, mobile and extremely easy to handle. In order to get started you first need to unlock the wooden latches of the bellows on both sides. Next you open the levers for the notes you like to sound. Finally, you gently move the open bellows on one side - and there unfolds your drone! 

WHO CAN USE A SHRUTI BOX?
The Shruti box needs neither tuning nor an elaborate playing technique. Thus, it is equally suitable for musical beginners and for professional musicians, teachers, therapists and performers. It produces a pleasant natural acoustical carpet of sound for any kind of work and allows to keep full concentration on singing, talking, watching or moving while being played.

CONSTRUCTION
The Shruti box produces a powerful, carrying drone sound and is extremely easy to play. It is ideally suited for accompanying any kind of Indian music, voice work, modal improvisation or overtone singing, or Indian wind instruments, especially the bansuri (bamboo flute). Sound and tone production are similar to that of a harmonium or an accordion: metal reeds inside the instruments are caused to vibrate by compressed air passing by them. The air movement is controlled by two bellows on both sides of the instrument. One side carries 13 levers. Opening them allows the air to stream out from the inside and causes the reed underneath the lever to produce a note. The Shruti box covers a full octave of 13 chromatic half notes. That way you can freely choose a tone that best suits your specific requirements. For a particularly rich and full sound it is advisable to add a fifth or a lower fourth to the tonic. Any other combination is possible as well, of course. Its advantage over the harmonium: it’s smaller, lighter, cheaper, easier to transport and easier to play.

HOW TO PLAY
The Shruti box can be played with one hand while sitting, standing or even walking. First you have to open the side levers that lock the whole instrument. Then you open the levers for the desired notes - this side should be facing you. Now put your hand on top of the instrument and press the side without the levers towards yourself. The volume can be adjusted by varying the tempo and pressure applied to the bellows. When you loosen the pressure of your fingers, the bellows will automatically unfold and you can press again to get a continuous sound. If you slip your hand through the handle on top of the instrument you can carry and play it at the same time with just one hand. Alternatively, you can also put a strap through the handle and hang it around your neck.

TIPS FOR PLAYING
It is best to keep the Shruti box standing on even ground or any stable support. Alternatively, it can be carried on its handle to allow free movement while playing. Volume and continuity of sound depend upon the speed and pressure of the movement of the bellows. You will get a feel for that in no time. A particularly round and beautiful drone is created by adding the fifth or the fourth above the chosen fundamental (also called "tonic"). Other combinations of notes are possible as well, according to individual preferences - from straight major chords to dissonant clusters. But watch out: More sounding notes mean more air consumption - harder pumping is required in order to maintain a steady sound!

HISTORY
The Shruti box has been developed from the European harmonium, which had been brought to India by missionaries in the 19th century. It is also called surpeti and is traditionally used mainly for vocal accompaniment of folk or religious music. Its lack of a keyboard makes it a pure drone instrument. Drones are continuously sounding single or multiple notes whose uninterrupted presence creates an open space of sound. This space can be filled by melodies or other musical structures. The idea of drone is an essential part of Indian music. However, drones are known in Western music too, especially in its more ancient forms. Some Western instruments like the bagpipe or the hurdy-gurdy even have drones built in.

Spouting Bowl

Productnr.: 1750

Dimensions: 39 cm

SPOUTING BOWL

The invention of the Chinese spouting bowl dates back to the Han Dynasty, over 2000 years ago.
The Chinese name of a bowl like this, LONGXI, is derived from the pattern on the bottom of the bowl, an image of 4 dragons. 

How to use
Fill the bowl halfway with water and rub the handles vigorously with wet hands. The resonance will produce pleasing sounds and causes the water to ripple and eventually spout, even up to 50 cms. It may cost some time to practice but the result is astonishing!

Check this video on YouTube to watch an example of the use of a spouting bowl: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OPXiQpD6ucs

Cymbals - plain - optimum continuous sound quality

Tingshas (ding-shas, cymbals) are used as musical offerings in spiritual practices, en during meditation practice, at regular intervals, in order to maintain concentration. “Musical offerings” are common in puja (praying rituals) and a number of instruments are used: bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Musical offerings are indeed standard in many Tibetan Buddhist and Hindi rituals. Today they are used by these and lay people alike. They are used with Feng Shui, meditation, cleansing, healing and alignment.

For what purposes can I use tingshas?
Strike the hand cymbals together and a beautiful, clear, high note will rise from them, clearing the air and creating an extraordinary stillness. The scintillating tone of the tingsha instantly strikes a resonance within the human heart. Their purpose is to summon, and they call us to awareness, to remember who we are, and to recognize our priorities in this often turbulent and illusive world. When they are suspended horizontally and struck together, a delightful, oscillating wave of sound seems to pass between them as they reverberate at a high frequency, creating an impressive symphony of haunting sounds.
 
Tingshas and Feng Shui
Tingshas are also used in Feng Shui to clear the energy present in a room and "open" it by sounding the tingshas in the four corners of a room. A great way to clear energy when smudging is not appropriate!

Tingshas and healing sound
By healing or balancing auric fields, they are also used to define the beginning and the end of a period of meditation. Some say the use of tingshas is like a summons. It brings us into the here and now.

How to store tingshas
As with many altar offerings, we recommend placing them wrapped in cloth when not in use, or in the special tingsha brocade holder with two compartments (cloth).

Decoration of tingshas
The casting may include decoration of the upper surfaces - usually depicting dragons, the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", the Tibetan eight auspicious symbols or just plain.

Composition of tingshas
Each tingsha is individually sand cast of a variety of metals, typically from a minimum of three. Most cymbals are made of bronze, consisting of copper and tin primarily, with small amounts of nickel occasionally added.
Superior tingshas are made of seven (7) or more (up to 12) metal bell alloys, producing a powerful harmonic resonance when played.

Tingshas are also used in Feng Shui to clear the energy present in a room and "open" it by sounding the tingshas in the four corners of a room. A great way to clear energy when smudging is not appropriate!

Tingshas and healing sound
By healing or balancing auric fields, they are also used to define the beginning and the end of a period of meditation. Some say the use of tingshas is like a summons. It brings us into the here and now.

How to store tingshas
As with many altar offerings, we recommend placing them wrapped in cloth when not in use, or in the special tingsha brocade holder with two compartments (cloth).

Decoration of tingshas
The casting may include decoration of the upper surfaces - usually depicting dragons, the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", the Tibetan eight auspicious symbols or just plain.

Composition of tingshas
Each tingsha is individually sand cast of a variety of metals, typically from a minimum of three. Most cymbals are made of bronze, consisting of copper and tin primarily, with small amounts of nickel occasionally added.
Superior tingshas are made of seven (7) or more (up to 12) metal bell alloys, producing a powerful harmonic resonance when played.

Cymbals - optimum continuous sound - dragons

Tingshas (ding-shas, cymbals) are used as musical offerings in spiritual practices, en during meditation practice, at regular intervals, in order to maintain concentration. “Musical offerings” are common in puja (praying rituals) and a number of instruments are used: bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Musical offerings are indeed standard in many Tibetan Buddhist and Hindi rituals. Today they are used by these and lay people alike. They are used with Feng Shui, meditation, cleansing, healing and alignment.

For what purposes can I use tingshas?
Strike the hand cymbals together and a beautiful, clear, high note will rise from them, clearing the air and creating an extraordinary stillness. The scintillating tone of the tingsha instantly strikes a resonance within the human heart. Their purpose is to summon, and they call us to awareness, to remember who we are, and to recognize our priorities in this often turbulent and illusive world. When they are suspended horizontally and struck together, a delightful, oscillating wave of sound seems to pass between them as they reverberate at a high frequency, creating an impressive symphony of haunting sounds.

Cymbals - with dragon symbols

Tingshas (ding-shas, cymbals) are used as musical offerings in spiritual practices, en during meditation practice, at regular intervals, in order to maintain concentration. “Musical offerings” are common in puja (praying rituals) and a number of instruments are used: bells, drums, cymbals and horns. Musical offerings are indeed standard in many Tibetan Buddhist and Hindi rituals. Today they are used by these and lay people alike. They are used with Feng Shui, meditation, cleansing, healing and alignment.

For what purposes can I use tingshas?
Strike the hand cymbals together and a beautiful, clear, high note will rise from them, clearing the air and creating an extraordinary stillness. The scintillating tone of the tingsha instantly strikes a resonance within the human heart. Their purpose is to summon, and they call us to awareness, to remember who we are, and to recognize our priorities in this often turbulent and illusive world. When they are suspended horizontally and struck together, a delightful, oscillating wave of sound seems to pass between them as they reverberate at a high frequency, creating an impressive symphony of haunting sounds.
 
Tingshas and Feng Shui
Tingshas are also used in Feng Shui to clear the energy present in a room and "open" it by sounding the tingshas in the four corners of a room. A great way to clear energy when smudging is not appropriate!

Tingshas and healing sound
By healing or balancing auric fields, they are also used to define the beginning and the end of a period of meditation. Some say the use of tingshas is like a summons. It brings us into the here and now.

How to store tingshas
As with many altar offerings, we recommend placing them wrapped in cloth when not in use, or in the special tingsha brocade holder with two compartments (cloth).

Decoration of tingshas
The casting may include decoration of the upper surfaces - usually depicting dragons, the mantra "Om Mani Padme Hum", the Tibetan eight auspicious symbols or just plain.

Composition of tingshas
Each tingsha is individually sand cast of a variety of metals, typically from a minimum of three. Most cymbals are made of bronze, consisting of copper and tin primarily, with small amounts of nickel occasionally added.
Superior tingshas are made of seven (7) or more (up to 12) metal bell alloys, producing a powerful harmonic resonance when played.

Shruti Box Mata Hari

A high quality concert instrument with particularly large bellows and a full, carrying sound. Gentle movement of the bellows is enough to keep the sound stable, even with several levers opened. The frame is made of massive wood and the sides are made of ply-wood. Including a bag of carrying and storage. Tonal range from c to c'. 

Each instrument is individually hand-crafted and might differ somewhat from our description/photos.

THE SHRUTI BOX 
The Shruti box, also called surpeti, is a perfect accompaniment for modal music, improvisation, voice work, overtone singing, music therapy and all kinds of Indian music. It gives a full, supporting drone sound and is sturdy, mobile and extremely easy to handle. In order to get started you first need to unlock the wooden latches of the bellows on both sides. Next you open the levers for the notes you like to sound. Finally, you gently move the open bellows on one side - and there unfolds your drone! 

WHO CAN USE A SHRUTI BOX?
The Shruti box needs neither tuning nor an elaborate playing technique. Thus, it is equally suitable for musical beginners and for professional musicians, teachers, therapists and performers. It produces a pleasant natural acoustical carpet of sound for any kind of work and allows to keep full concentration on singing, talking, watching or moving while being played.

CONSTRUCTION
The Shruti box produces a powerful, carrying drone sound and is extremely easy to play. It is ideally suited for accompanying any kind of Indian music, voice work, modal improvisation or overtone singing, or Indian wind instruments, especially the bansuri (bamboo flute). Sound and tone production are similar to that of a harmonium or an accordion: metal reeds inside the instruments are caused to vibrate by compressed air passing by them. The air movement is controlled by two bellows on both sides of the instrument. One side carries 13 levers. Opening them allows the air to stream out from the inside and causes the reed underneath the lever to produce a note. The Shruti box covers a full octave of 13 chromatic half notes. That way you can freely choose a tone that best suits your specific requirements. For a particularly rich and full sound it is advisable to add a fifth or a lower fourth to the tonic. Any other combination is possible as well, of course. Its advantage over the harmonium: it’s smaller, lighter, cheaper, easier to transport and easier to play.

HOW TO PLAY
The Shruti box can be played with one hand while sitting, standing or even walking. First you have to open the side levers that lock the whole instrument. Then you open the levers for the desired notes - this side should be facing you. Now put your hand on top of the instrument and press the side without the levers towards yourself. The volume can be adjusted by varying the tempo and pressure applied to the bellows. When you loosen the pressure of your fingers, the bellows will automatically unfold and you can press again to get a continuous sound. If you slip your hand through the handle on top of the instrument you can carry and play it at the same time with just one hand. Alternatively, you can also put a strap through the handle and hang it around your neck.

TIPS FOR PLAYING
It is best to keep the Shruti box standing on even ground or any stable support. Alternatively, it can be carried on its handle to allow free movement while playing. Volume and continuity of sound depend upon the speed and pressure of the movement of the bellows. You will get a feel for that in no time. A particularly round and beautiful drone is created by adding the fifth or the fourth above the chosen fundamental (also called "tonic"). Other combinations of notes are possible as well, according to individual preferences - from straight major chords to dissonant clusters. But watch out: More sounding notes mean more air consumption - harder pumping is required in order to maintain a steady sound!

HISTORY
The Shruti box has been developed from the European harmonium, which had been brought to India by missionaries in the 19th century. It is also called surpeti and is traditionally used mainly for vocal accompaniment of folk or religious music. Its lack of a keyboard makes it a pure drone instrument. Drones are continuously sounding single or multiple notes whose uninterrupted presence creates an open space of sound. This space can be filled by melodies or other musical structures. The idea of drone is an essential part of Indian music. However, drones are known in Western music too, especially in its more ancient forms. Some Western instruments like the bagpipe or the hurdy-gurdy even have drones built in.

The Mystical Damaru

This fascinating and mystical damaru is beautifully decorated with colourful silk tassel and fringes which looks extremely beautiful and produces perfect sound. Easy to roll together to be packed in a silk brocade box for travel. Perfect sound and balance, excellent quality ritual drum.

The pitch of the drum varies, and the tone may vary depending on conditions of dampness, temperature and so on. Played slowly, and methodically, the droning of the damaru accompanies the haunting melodies and chants of the Chod ritual, as of which are accompaniments for the inner meditations and visualizations that are at the heart of this spiritual practice.

The sound of the damaru is viewed as a symbol of emptiness or shunyata. The two drums joined together represents relative and ultimate Bodhicitta. The shape of the damaru has its roots in ancient India -- where one side of the drum is seen to represent the male energy or Lingam, and the other represents female creativity. The creation of the world thus begins when the lingam and yoni meet at the mid-point of the damaru.

In Tantric Buddhist rituals the damaru instructs us and reminds us of impermanence as the sound summons forth the female deities called Dakini.
Another interpretation of the sound of the Damaru suggests that the drum depicts the powers of the rhythm of the heart beat.
In Hinduism, especially by Shiva devotees, it is believed that beating of the Damaru by Shiva produced the veryfirst sound (nada). This first sound was made in the void of nothingness. Shiva began his dance of creation to the rhythm of the Damaru. From his dance, the world came into being.
