ET-8227-00- KANJIRA, KEY-TUNED, 7" DIAMETER, 2-3/8" DEPTH, ANTIQUE VENEER
Our Kanjira leaves the Remo factory with a medium low pitch, as suggested by Selvaganesh.
You can easily tune the Remo Kanjira with a 5/64” hex key by inserting it into the four recessed key holes (tuning points), and either turning clockwise to increase the pitch, or counter-clockwise to decrease the pitch.
If you want to lower the pitch further and lengthen the modulation range, follow these steps:
1. Turn screws clockwise- incrementally in a cross-star pattern, till the head is slightly tighter.
2. Place the palms of your hands on the drumhead as illustrated, and lightly press evenly around the surface.
3. Reset the drumheads tension by turning screws counter clockwise, incrementally in a cross-star pattern, till the head is completely loose.
4. Fine-tune the drum by evenly turning screws clockwise again till desired pitch is reached.
*If it is difficult to modulate/bend pitch with your fingers, loosen the tuning mechanisms.
*If buzzing occurs, tighten the tuning mechanisms.
