I have been using a new kind of electronic tanpura and it is really beautiful. It is called PureTones. They customize the tanpura sound for your chosen raga by using key notes of the raga and harmonizing them.

My favorite one is Bihagda here: https://puretones.bandcamp.com/
It is fairly versatile and you can probably use it for other ragas also that have the Shuddha Gandhar (G3), Shuddha Nishad (N3) and P. Thought I’d share. Listen to it with a pair of headphones and sing to it. It’ll take some getting used to but it is just lovely.
