Subject: RE: Tech: Shruti Boxes - Thoughts?
My Shruti Box arrived today, all the way from Dheli, carried by a dozen migrating swallows who were paid double-time to detour from South Africa especially. It sweetly drones on the tonic with either an octave, a 4th or a 5th above - and it's entirely tuneable so I can play it with even my most recalcitrant Jew's Harps, and my pocket trumpet's a bit sharp of concert too! Sweet, and loud! Can't wait until I get my fat bastard clarinets out of storage to really put it through its paces.
Interested? Here's how to get one: Shruti Box Oh, and mine's black & white, rather than orange...
