Harmonium with standard pratap that features a fixed keyboard, integral bellows and dozens of sound combinations. It has just over 3 octaves and 3 drones and 4 stops that directs the air over the upper and lower reeds. Includes two banks of 39 reeds and 39 keys, so each key can activate two reeds. Finish color and decoration style may vary from photo.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. Harmoniums are mainly used as an accompaniment to devotional songs. As with many Indian instruments, the key for the music is selected to best suit the vocals or to set a mood. Although it was invented in France nearly 200 years ago, the harmonium has been extremely popular and strongly embraced by India after it was brought there during the British Occupation. DISCLAIMER: Some of the finishes are very impressionable, no pun intended. During the long transportation from India, the finish may become 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.
