Noted that they've got both acoustic ones and a couple of electronic ones at Hobgoblin now. The acoustic ones have a dozen or so 'stops' on them at diatonic intervals. I'm no 'nu'-folker nor post-rocker but the leccy ones are very 'old-school' as well with -I'd say- analogue circuitry rather than digital. So no samples, but dirty, organic, electronic tone generation.

Sounds about right. Beautiful!

Alexy Murchoch [sp?] just played his as accompaniment on WNYC's Sound Check. My initial reaction was that it was a Hurdy Gurdy he was playing as a straight drone. Then, he explained what it was. Great sound.

Just learned today to play (and sing) katlaughing's (and Judie McKeown's) Waves of Sorrow on my shruti.

The biggest problem I have with my Shruti box is figuring out what to do with it. I'm not particularly good at learning things by ear, so I watch the video of Jackie Oates singing Past Caring and really really wish the camera was over her shoulder so I could see how she's changing the notes because it takes me forever to figure it out.

Probably good for me to make the effort though. I found that video quite revealing as she's doing a bit more than just turning the dominant or third on and off.
