What is the difference between male and female Tanpura? I want to buy( not the electronic one). need some advise.
The main difference is pitch and thickness of strings. since male pitch ranging C to D# normally so the gauge of strings is chosen accordingly. Size of Tanpura is also bigger to give more bass and resonance. Female Tanpura pitch range is G to B key and it sounds sharper than Male Tanpura.
Other than this no difference. So consider your pitch before making any buying decision.
I would like comparison of Indian music saptak like sa re komal re with western method like c or c# etc.
