Harmonium Tuning

OUR TUNING PROCESS:

Our standard harmonium tuning process begins at our shop in India and ends at our U.S. location where a member of our staff - all highly trained and deeply experienced musicians - will finalize the set-up and tuning on every harmonium we sell. You won't find a more thorough refinement process anywhere.

Bhava harmoniums are available with the following tuning options:

Concert Pitch (A440 tuning) - FREE: A Concert Pitch tuned harmonium will match the default tuning for Western Instruments - piano, guitar, etc. - "equal tempered" with the middle A resonating at exactly 440 hz. For this service, all reeds are retuned up and down to scale to correspond with the Concert Pitch standard. This is the best choice for most musicians and students.

Cosmic Pitch (A432 Tuning) - Add $100/Non-returnable: With this service, all reeds are drastically retuned nearly a quarter tone below standard Concert Pitch to match a middle A resonating at exactly 432 hz. For most customers, this service is neither practical or recommended, but for those who are experimenting in this direction, we do offer the service on select models from our store. While this service will not void any warranty with our store, it is not reversible. Therefore, any harmoniums or shruti boxes tuned to A432 will not be eligible for return or exchange.

An A432 hz. referenced instrument will sound very out of tune when played alongside any traditionally tuned instrument. This means if you are taking a harmonium course, you will not be able to play this instrument alongside your instructor or classmates. Similarly, if you are using this instrument in a recording or performing context, you will not be able to use this unless every other instrument is also tuned to this pitch reference.

While much of India is rapidly advancing, the Indian instrument manufacturing process remains very old school. From touch ups to tuning, much of what we do at Old Delhi Music is add a layer of quality control to an otherwise non-standardized production process.

We wrote THIS ARTICLE to ensure customers understand and might appreciate this vintage production style, the unique products we carry, and how we're working to ensure genuine quality, despite the odds. It's a quick read, and definitely worthwhile for anyone considering the purchase of a traditional Indian instrument.

Thank you,
Old Delhi Music

          Tears streamed down my face when I played it

          I already have a harmonium but something was not quite right and I then bought a Bhava Studio dark cedar. It is exquisite. The sustain is so luxuriously long that it makes a beginner sound like a pro. I bought a B-stock with cosmetic blemishes and even this one looks fantastic- the finishing is beautiful and professionally done. The keys are so highly polished they are gleaming. Not a creak from anywhere, just awesome playability and a delight to the ears. Nic and staff, you are doing such a grand job with this. I love my new Bhava, thank you so much

          Perfect Harmonium for our Little Temple

          We bought a smaller Bhava harmonium last year for home. We've been thoroughly impressed with the quality and sound of the instrument so we bought this one for our little temple meditation group. Being able to get the A432 tuning is a special treat. Also want to mention that Nic's videos are wonderfully helpful.

          Wonderful Sound & Customer Service Experience

          I was so pleased to receive my new harmonium from Old Delhi Music!! The sound is amazing, and the sustain is wonderful. The instrument is beautifully crafted, and it arrived in perfect condition!

          I really appreciated watching the informational videos on the website, and was super pleased that Nic took the time to talk with me about my needs before ordering! He answered all my questions and I felt very comfortable purchasing from Old Delhi. It's really good to know that the instrument was thoroughly tuned, and inspected prior to shipment to me. Also, good to know that they stand behind their products and are available for ongoing advice and service as needed.

          Thank you Old Delhi Music for my beautiful harmonium--it increases my joy every time we play it!!
