INDIAN RAGA Tone Bar - Cryogenic Steel
$16.50 On Sale
Debashish Bhattacharya's signature tone bar. Carved from an ingot of highest quality 440 stainless steel, each bar is heat treated to 60 Rockwell hardness before being cryogenically frozen to -300 degrees to remove all construction stresses.
The sustain will send chills up your back. Just like Debhashish's music.
Debashish Bhattacharya's original slide was a hunk of rough steel. Upon visiting the staff at the John Pearse Company in Pennsylvania, they copied the shape and cast it in this new Thermo-Cryonic version. It is made to play with the point of the bar rather than the standard "laying on it's side" usage of the other bars so it is 5/8:" in diameter and 2-1/2 inches long.
