Another term for "Shruti box"

Sorry I forgot this earlier:

Another name you may see for the bellows-driven acoustic "shruti box" is
"swarpeti" also spelled "swarpetti," "surpetti," "shrutipetti," etc.  
or "Sur" is the musical term for "note," "peti" means box or carrying case.
I've only heard this term used for the acoustic instrument, but some people
may use it to refer to the modern ones also.
