Snippets from recordings of me playing the tanpura.
Tuned to E flat, the notes from top to bottom are B flat, E flat, C, low E flat.
In traditional Indian tuning the root note in the scale is referred to as Sa and is E flat in this scale The fifth note (B flat in this scale) is referred to as Pa and the sixth note (C) is Dha

I noticed that my first pack of tanpura samples has a bit of fuzzy white noise so in this pack I have equalized - I reduced all the very high frequencies which got rid of most of the white noise without affecting the low frequency sounds of the tanpura itself.

Please note this is the tanpura part of an instrument called the Swar Sangam which combines the Swarmandal (Indian Harp) and the Tanpura, it is not a traditional tanpura and does sound slightly different.
