Sound Sample

Tarang offers a professional Kanjira in best quality. Kanjira is a small south indian frame drum which is very much related to the family of tambourines. The diameter of the wooden rim is appx. 7 to 8 inches. The wooden frame is covered with a lizard skin and is aquipped with a pair of brass jingle on one side for getting a sharp cut sound. Withour any tuning the sound of the Kanjira is very high. To get good sound out of the lizard skin it has to be sprinkled with water on the inner side to get more flexibility. This procedure has to be done very carefully because if one uses to much water the sound gets dull. If it happened one has to wait about 10 minutes to give the skin a chance to get dry again. It needs some experience how much water one should use. The right amount of water supports a fantastic bass sound and a big range of modulation is possible similar as we know it from the tabla. Kanjira also reacts to climatic contitions. Kanjira is mostly used in the south indian classical music (carnatic music system of south india).

Tarang's offer on Indian Musical Instruments

TARANG offers on principle only high-qualtiy musical instruments. This is made possible by close personal contact to the suppliers and a strict selection of the instruments that are included in our range of goods. We do not offer any instruments which reach the west from unknown sources via importers and which are often resold by middlemen without any quality check and setting of the instrument. The demand from the west is relatively high in India. The purchase prices are negotiated to the lowest limit by the western countries, especially for high ordered quantities. This has effects on the required care and circumspection in craftsmanship, on the experience and mentality of the commissioned manufacturer and the use of parts of the instruments that are often of a poor qualtity. Irrespective of the qualification of the skill in craftsmanship, this leads, in some cases, to results that do not deserve the name instrument. Thus it is easily comprehensible that it is essential, when bying an Indian instrument, to know the sources. TARANG only supplies instruments from indisputable sources. All instruments are delivered adjusted and ready to be played.

Of course, we understand that somebody who purchases an instrument is also dependent on accessories and spare parts. Also in this respect we can satisfy the needs of our customers. Should an instrument be defective at any time, we can arrange for appropriate restoration. As a rule we can deliver any instrument offered on our website within 1 - 2 weeks. Our international lists of teachers enable everybody to find information about a teacher in their proximity. You can expect from us: reasonable prices, prompt service and straightforward processing of purchase and delivery.

The financial aspect also has to be mentioned. Despite the high quality we offer, we also do our best to offer you these instruments at very competitive and reasonable prices.
