Tanpura is a drone instrument used mainly in melodic music. The sound of the tanpura is the very frame of reference on which the entire melody rests. It provides a meditative and calming environment besides providing support and sustain to another melody instrument.

A characteristic feature of the tanpura is that its sound is very rich in overtones.  This produces a special rich sound which helps the listener to transcend.

Our tanpura drum has a set of 6 notes: C#3 G#3 B3 C#4 D#4 G#4. Playing the drum will help you in creating a very peaceful and serene environment.
