About this Maharaja Musicals Box Tanpuri – No. DBE (Instrumental Tanpura/Tambura)

 

Maharaja Musicals Box Tanpuri is an instrumental Tanpura. It's  a piece of excellent craftsmanship and uses finest materials. It has a rounded & sustained sound, with a richness in overtones that is so typical for this Tanpura variant. The keynote can be tuned to c – d.

This instrumental Tanpura is about 92 cm in length and is stringed with 3 thin steel strings. The sound can be described as clear and silvery. The characteristic tuning of an instrumental Tanpura is around c (c - d). Instrumental Tanpuras are used in Indian music e.g. at Sarod or Sitar concerts.

 The richness in overtones is closely related to the position of the threads which are squeezed in between bridge and strings. The position of the threads changes the bearing angle between strings and bridge and so influences a strong or less strong vibrating/twanging which is responsible for the richness in overtones. If you would like to maintain or change the richness in overtones, you should newly adjust these threads every once in a while in order to keep your favourite sound pattern. This may be necessary with every new tuning of the instrument.

 This Tanpura is made my Manu ji - our master string craftsman. He pays full attention to good craftsmanship and the sound quality of every single instrument.
