Harmonium, Standard, Natraj 47-HM6S
Our Harmonium, Standard, Natraj has
drones (top pulls) and 4 stops (lower pulls) to direct the air over the
upper or lower reeds. Fixed keyboard, integral bellows, and dozens of
sound combinations. 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. As such they are not in concert
pitch and are not meat to be. Harmonium tuning does not reflect the
Western Scale and is not meant to.
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.
