The 39 keys give a range of three octaves and two half note steps. Each note is fitted with two reeds in middle and low octave (male / bass). They can be played separately or in combination, giving three different tonal colours. The external bellows open to the top. They fold out and fill themselves automatically when unlocked. You just need to pull them towards yourself for playing - always against a little resistence, though. The removable cover on top of the key mechanisms (jali) allows variations of volume and timbre. The high gloss natural shellac surfaces give this harmonium a great classy look.

Pine wood is the first choice for harmoniums around Delhi and in North Western India. It is much softer than teak wood, which is more common in Mumbai and Calcutta. Therefore pinewood harmoniums often get little dents or scratches during manufacturing, storage or transit to Europe. Such marks are a natural property of the wood and can not be seen as flaws or defects.
 
Tuning
 
In India, our harmoniums are tuned in equal temperament to Western standard pitch with a = 440 hertz. However, due to lower average air temperatures, they usually sound slightly higher at a = 441 to 442 hertz in Europe. The difference is so small, that even trained ears do not necessarily notice it. Nevertheless the difference may create problems in studio productions or when playing together with instruments with a tuning that can not easily be adjusted. Therefore we offer individual manual tuning to a = 440 hertz (or any other reference pitch close to that) with a surcharge on request. We can also also supply custom-made harmoniums with considerably different tunings (e.g. a = 432 hertz or just intonation). Please contact us if you're interested in that.
