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).

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
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.
