E- Tanpura is a substitute for Tanpura performers. this can generate the sound of Tanpura when Tanpura performers are not available. It has a different pitch to match the pitch of the performers. It replicates the Tanpura, an Indian stringed instrument. It is also called an electronic tambura, or a shruti box, etc.
The E-Tanpura was invented so as to provide a marketable and practical solution to the instrumentalists and also those who can’t avail themselves of private Tanpura trainers for long hours of private practice. The range of the Tanpura is usually 1 to 2 octaves along with other switches and buttons. These switches and buttons do allow a perfect pitch and volume that can be saved for a future time. There are a few dials that are provided to control the tone and the volume of the Tanpura.
