The acronym, S.R.I stands for Synthetic Rhythm Indian. All our percussion instruments will have the word “sri” embedded in the “peace”symbol shown below. The peace symbol originally designed for Nuclear Disarmament by Gerald Holtom, was later adopted widely as a symbol of peace and more generally, as a symbol for non- violence. For more details on this symbol, you may refer to the url www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peace_symbols
The S.R.I logo thus epitomizes the various aspects of our percussion instrument: Synthetic, Rhythm, Indian, and cruelty-free. The “Indian” attribute comes from the fact that these kinds of“loaded” drum heads were invented in India and is completely native to the Indian subcontinent. It is this loading that gives the drum its harmonic overtones.
