High-speed video camera recordings are used to observe dynamics of an actual Tānpurā string. The temporal evolution of the frequency spectrum is obtained by measuring the nut force during the string vibration. The characteristic sonorous sound of Tānpurā is attributed to not only the presence of a large number of over-tones but also to the dominance of certain harmonics over the fundamental, the latter manifesting itself as a certain cascading effect. The nature of sound is shown to be strongly dependent on the initial plucking amplitude of the string. The stability of the in-plane vertical motion of the string is also emphasised.
