   (0 reviews)

The Saarang Sparshini Dx is an artistic digital tanpura with a grand stage presence and an exquisitely crafted cabinet.

The Saarang electronic tambura (tanpura) is a sophisticated musical instrument for providing sruti (sur) accompaniment to performers of music. It incorporates the latest state-of-the-art technology. The Saarang can be tuned to any pitch over a range of more than one octave thus enabling it to be used by men or women vocalists as well as instrumentalists. The Saarang Sparshini is created in the shape of a traditional tambura. It has the unique feature of being 'plucked' like a traditional tanpura, or used as an automatically playing instrument. The Saarang Sparshini tanpura (tambura) can be operated on any voltage from 90 – 260V AC Mains, as well as on a set of six 1.5V dry batteries. An additional speaker is provided in the stem portion of the instrument.

It has a built-in accurate digital pitch reference allowing the user to select the exact pitch of his/her choice. It has a range of pitch covering one and a half octaves. Selection of any fractional pitch between the standard half-note pitch settings is possible by fine tuning. Any setting of pitch, tempo and pluck style can be stored together in memory so that the instrument selects these automatically when switched ON.

It has beautiful resonating natural tanpura sound using the latest sampler technology, and can be used as a 4 or 5 string tanpura. The Sparshini has automatic tuning of 4 notes, and manual tuning of 5th note. The unique feature in the Saarang Sparshini is the touch-sensitive string sensors – it can be plucked and played like a traditional tanpura. A perfectly tuned note is produced on touching each string. It can however also be used as an automatically played tanpura. Auto tuning of all 4 notes has been provided in both modes of operation.
