Srishti Instrumental Tanpura

4 String

Suitable for vocal or instrumental use.

Aged premium mahogany (tun) wood. Fully carved and decorated in dual colored penwork. Rosewood swirled pegs. Has a larger body than the standard tanpura, very resonant with a beautiful finish. Strings are set to a typical instrumental tuning which is 1 octave higher than a traditional male tanpura.  Thicker wound strings could be used for vocal tuning of 1 octave lower if desired with slight jawari modification which is available as an option. Comes with a rexine case included in the price. This tanpura has been air shipped (as are all of our instruments) to preserve its quality. Please note these are made individually so each will vary slightly in decoration.

Rikhiram Female Tanpura

4 String

Vintage pre-owned instrument

Made sometime in the 70's is the best guess. This wonderful mahogany female tanpura was locally owned by several vocalists and finally a friend of mine.. The first owner added a custom top gourd with a clamp to use as a prop to play it sitting on the floor. It has a wonderful warm sound. Ebony bridge with bone runners for the strings. Due to its age has a little cosmetic wear and surface checking but good for another generation. This is a very large instrument for a female tanpura at almost 54 inches long and a 16 inch tabli. The neck is also quite thick and round similar to a rudra veena. There is no case with this and is too large for modern cases. Of course local pickup is always welcomed but I'm happy to ship it if needed and will setup however you like. Email with your address for a shipping quote.
