I am looking for a digital tanpura and I thought that the sur sagar digital tanpura with remote looked like a good option. You could even use it for tuning. Does anyone have experience with it? I have heard the ragini tanpura, which is ok. Which is better?
Raagini is the better choice, and if you can get the Professional model which is no longer made, than you are set. The sursagar digital tambura is very fake sounding, and the workmanship on the inside is very poor, i.e, using salvage parts, and poor quality wire.
Hi, I've tried the SurSagar also and the one I heard....the samples were clean but very thin and also there was really no overlapping of the sound while playing. I'm not sure I remember right but I think the thing is controlled with the remote only also....someone correct me if I'm wrong.... The Raagini samples overlap and has a slight bit of aliasing which gives it a more real sound. The newer digital ones are stable, the older ones would vary in tune when warming up......
The new raagini I saw on Lars' site has seems to play more than just the sa, pa, ma that the old one did. I think it has a western scale on it for tuning. Is that correct? If so it has all the options the other one has and if it sounds better, why not.
