BLEMISHED: This deluxe, Sardar brand, harmoium features a scale changer, a mechanical coupler and a suitcase style folding body. The multi-fold bellows can be played left or right handed. There are 5 drones and 4 stops to control the air-flow. Suitcase models have a removable cover and the keyboard pops up for playing and stores in locked-down position for travel. The mechanical coupler allows you to play separate reeds, 2 octaves apart, with the stroke of one key. There is also a scale changer; which is a mechanism that allows you to slide the keyboard left or right. To play in a different key, just shift the keyboard over a 3 3/4 Octave range.
Tuned to A=440 Hz (+-3 cents).
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.
