Tanpura, Flat Back, Deluxe with 4 metal strings.
Beautifully carved and inlaid. The flat toomba creates a more simple profile, and is not as delicate as the traditional gourd toomba. It is therefore easier to transport. It may be smaller, but you get the same traditional tanpura sound.
Approximately 42 inches long, includes nylon gig bag case.
SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
