Comfortable rope and bells with wonderful sound! Ropes for binding could have been longer.
Ordered on a thursday and the package was delivered to Europe from the US the following wednesday, I got them in time for my performance!
Shipping was within time specified and quality of the ghungroo is excellent. I found that the rope was too small though - they need to be long enough to go around the entire ankle and then have length to tie a knot also.
The ankle bells were delivered on time. The bindings are also good. But it would have been better if the rope for binding them on ankle was a bit longer in length.
Ghungroo are good, and we using them from couple of months, they are good.
Good ankle bells and reasonable price. I got a free shipping because I ordered more than $100. I havn't seen such a complete store for dance even in India. Very happy to see the products. Good service too.
The bells and sound is good, but the thread looks dirty. Seem like they were stored in a dusty place...
