About this KANAI LAL & SONS Female Tanpura – No. DDI (Traditional Style Tambura)

 

 

This Tanpura is crafted by Sh. Subhas Bhowmick of Kanai Lal & Sons, Calcutta. This Tanpura comes with a balanced, rounded, exceptionally full and warm sound and with richness in overtones. It's carefully crafted from a thoroghly dired Indian Tun Wood and the toomba is made from a perfectly shaped dried gourd, thus creating a resonance expected from this superior product. The Female Tanpura is mostly played in G, this one can be played in B flat, G or G#. If you need to play in some other scale, please let us know as soon as you buy.

 

The construction of the female Tanpuras is, apart from the size, the same as that of the male ones. With a size of around 52 inches they are a little smaller than the male Tanpuras, this is why their tuning is around G, between the instrumental Tanpuris and the male Tanpuras. They are equipped with 4 strings (3 Steel Strings & 1 Bronze) and are traditionally used for accompanying female singers.

 

 

This tanpura has been tastefullly done to look very beautiful. The finish is much better than any other tanpura you will find anywhere.   

 

This Tanpura comes with an extra set of strings, mizrabs and a tuning string - you can also order more of these optionally. It includes Fiber Trolly worth $300 - this keeps your delicate Tanpura safe during the transport. You can also buy a padded gig bag.
