Jackie Oates uses a shruti in performance and on her c.d. "The Violet Hour". It sounds interestingly effective with English traditional song.

After due consideration I think I'll be settling on an electronic plastic one. There's a few currently doing the rounds (one it a fetching curious orange) which seems ideal in terms of portability & tuneability - essential when I'm using my old simple system military (?) pitch C & Bb clarinets, pocket trumpet and a variety of otherwise untuned gew-gaws (Jew's Harps) & overtone flutes.

Meanwhile, I'll be making do with the stylophone...

Maybe John Kelly can help - though I think he plays a bina...
Build your own bina

This is entirely about Shruti boxes though.

What would an acoustic one be?

If you're not doing Indian music with it, you may find the tuning a bit disconcerting.

My experience of them is rather limited - trying to do a "fusion" performance of our Middle Eastern band with an Indian singer who backed herself with a shruti box. The structures of Indian and Arabic music are similar; the intonation systems are far enough apart to make your brain hurt.

Thinking about getting a Shruti box; acoustic or electronic. Anyone got any thoughts and / or advice?
