Our Harmonium, Deluxe, Natraj has 5
drones and 4 stops provide dozens of combinations of sounds. Fixed
keyboard and integral bellows. 3 1/2 octaves. Finish color and
decoration style may vary from photo. The Harmoniums are not meant to be
played in concert like a mini organ. The reeds in the harmonium are
tuned to sound well together, not necessarily with other instruments.
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. As such they are not in concert pitch and are not meat
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.
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.
