Product Description

This is a recording of the Indian drone instrument known as tanpura (a.k.a. tambura). It is a convenient and cost effective alternative to both the actual instrument as well as the electronic tanpura / shruti box. It is used for musical performance, practice, or as a background for meditation. Easy licensing is available so that this can be used in your own recordings. All 12 keys are available, this particular one is in the key of “E”.

This CD contains 2 30 minute drones based on E, and is a great practice/improv tool. Just put it on and go! If you need multiple drone tonics, you might look into getting the Raagini Digital Sitar, but if you're just starting out or know you will be limited to a small number of keys, this is a good option.

I wanted this for meditation background. It fits the bill but the overall sound quality could be better. There is really nothing wrong as much is is missing the richness of sound of an actual live instrument.
