    Box Tampura

    Posted by Ross Hyland on Apr 04, 2022

    I'm very pleased with warm authentic sound of this musical instrument. It seems to stay in tune for a long time and after much playing. It Some of the workmanship can look a bit rough , such as a tuning key initially installed the wrong way leaving screw holes in the timber.... but this sort of thing is part of getting a hand made instrument and doesn't affect the sound or playing. Shipping was reliable and fast with tracking all the way.... although estimates for construction were annoyingly optimistic and constantly changing. Not a problem if you realise the construction phase takes much more time than expected. Overall I'm absolutely delighted with this purchase.
