The Harmonium is an instrument
that is indispensable in India and that is used in the
religious field, in classical music, in folklore and for
playing within the family. It owes its popularity mainly
to its easy handling. The Harmonium can be compared in
its functioning to the accordeon. Air is pumped into an
enclosed space by means of bellows. With a keyboard it
is possible to open specially defined holes, through which
the pumped air is then pressed. The reeds attached to
the openings (double, triple or quadruple reeds) are set
vibrating and so produce the desired note.
has reduced the big range of Harmoniums from many different
manufacturers as the quality of the product line "PALOMA"
is so convincing that we decided to mainly go with that
models. An exeption is the standmodel of Manoj Kumar Sardar
which has an octave coupler.
HARMONIUMS AND STAND MODELS
Many years we offered mainly the folgable harmoniums
of different makers as the fact that many clients want
to carry their instrument or travel with it made it obvious
for us to concentrate on this models. But as this harmoniums
are higher in weight and in price and because due to the
more of machanical parts more problems can arise we now
changed our mind and offer mainly stand models which causes
less problems and which are also very good for transportation
in connection with the new flexible carry bag from Paloma.
As the weight of the harmonium is also less then that
of the foldable ones we think that is a good decition
to go on. The only foldable Harmonium we have is the scale
changer from Paloma. With that instrument we had continnous
good experience and we are able to recommend it highly.
Standard model we have from Paloma. This is an excellent
instrument in good workmanship and good sound quality.
Compared to the standard model this instrument has higher-value
features. Compared to the standard model of the same manufacturer
this instrument has substantially better mechanics and
quality of workmanship.
This instrument is very well suited for mobile use. The
travel model is supplied with a protective flexible carry
case to protect it when transported and against dust and
scratches. It has much less weight and is smaller then
the other instruments, yet it is a high quality Harmonium
with full sound range. .
As there is no Paloma harmonium with coupler available,
only the more expensive scale changer we offer an instrument
from Momoj Kumar Sardar. The possibility of using the
coupler enables the player to activate the next lower
octave at the same time which results in having up to
six reeds resounding simultaneously. So the coupler makes
it possible to produce, together with the double or triple
reeds, a particularly powerful, voluminous sound.
The scale-changer model is foldable and its special features
are a particularly careful workmanship and a harmonious
and full sound pattern. The keyboard has 42 keys and so
supplies you with a tonal range of 3 1/2 octaves. 5 adjustable
drones are possible. Triple or double reeds make sure
that every note is provided with three/two reeds (for
high, middle and low octave respectively). Three registers
with different settings make various timbres possible
by blowing the reeds either separately or in any number
of combinations. The possibility of using the coupler,
which is also available, enables the player to activate
the next lower octave at the same time which results in
having up to six or eight reeds resounding simultaneously.
So the coupler makes it possible to produce, together
with the triple reeds, a particularly powerful, voluminous

offers on principle only high-qualtiy musical instruments.
This is made possible by close personal contact to the
suppliers and a strict selection of the instruments that
are included in our range of goods. We do not offer any
instruments which reach the west from unknown sources
via importers and which are often resold by middlemen
without any quality check and setting of the instrument.
The demand from the west is relatively high in India.
The purchase prices are negotiated to the lowest limit
by the western countries, especially for high ordered
quantities. This has effects on the required care and
circumspection in craftsmanship, on the experience and
mentality of the commissioned manufacturer and the use
of parts of the instruments that are often of a poor qualtity.
Irrespective of the qualification of the skill in craftsmanship,
this leads, in some cases, to results that do not deserve
the name instrument. Thus it is easily comprehensible
that it is essential, when bying an Indian instrument,
to know the sources. TARANG only supplies instruments
from indisputable sources. All instruments are delivered
adjusted and ready to be played.
Of course, we understand that somebody who purchases an
instrument is also dependent on accessories and spare
parts. Also in this respect we can satisfy the needs of
our customers. Should an instrument be defective at any
time, we can arrange for appropriate restoration. As a
rule we can deliver any instrument offered on our website
within 1 - 2 weeks. Our international lists of teachers
enable everybody to find information about a teacher in
their proximity. You can expect from us: reasonable prices,
prompt service and straightforward processing of purchase
financial aspect also has to be mentioned. Despite the
high quality we offer, we also do our best to offer you
these instruments at very competitive and reasonable prices.
