Product Description

On this model there is only one air chamber. One stop acts as a Vibrato. The other three stops increase the air flow to the chamber and therefore the volume.The Harmoniums are not meant to be played in concert like a mini organ. This is instrument was introduced to India by the British. It has been embraced and is now a truly Indian instrument used as accompaniment in devotional songs. The reeds in the harmonium are tuned to sound well together, not necessarily with other instruments. As such they are not in concert pitch and are not meant to be. As with many Indian instruments the key for the music is selected to best suite the vocals, or to set a mood. Traditionally, Harmoniums are usually higher pitched if compared to the Western Scale. Harmonium tuning does not reflect the Western Scale and is not meant to. DISCLAIMER: Shellac is very impressionable, no pun intended. During the long transportation from India the shellac finish becomes marred by the packing materials. These impressions are superficial and cosmetic. Impressions on the finish do not affect the playability or sound. Therefore we do not consider such impressions as blemishes or defects.

Customer Reviews

Harmonium4 i recieved this item a few days before the exact date, so that was good. when i played it, i liked the sound, but when i played it with someone on acoustic guitar, it sounded even better, it's really easy to make songs up on and sounds great when played with other acoustic instruments.
