The harmonium is also known as a reed organ, or pump organ. Originally brought over from England, the pump organ was modified in India to create what is seen today, as has become a integral part of Indian music. The harmoniums we sell are all made in India. Before shipment all of our harmoniums go through a thorough quality check as follows. Each harmonium is checked for finish and cosmetic flaws. The harmoniums are then tuned to ensure A440 tuning, also checking the smoothness and ease of playability. Last we check the harmonium for air leaks, ensuring the quality of the harmonium's pump.
