My harmonium's making weird noises ! Apr 24, 2001 06:32 a.m.

Hi everyone, I wonder if you can help..
I've had my beautiful harmonium (Pakrashi, scale changer) for about 10 years. However, recently one of the keys/reeds (?) continues to play the note even after I have stopped pressing the key. It's as though air is escaping from somewhere and vibrating the reed (?). The only way I can get around the problem is by lifting the top cover and physically pressing down on the metal prong, thus muffling the sound, or simply playing on the single reed mechanism. Does anyone know how to fix this ?

Hi Priya,

I have read your message as I was trying to find a site for Introduction of Harmonium.

If you still need to fix your Harmonium, Please follow:

1.find some who play music with Harmonium and is not very famous or high earning person.

Or go to nearby mandir or Gurdwara where people most use harmonium, iether priest or someone you will definitely find who can tell you how or he will fix it for free or very little money.
If you are in LA or near SanFrancisco USA, I can give you some addresses.

Let me know if you still need help, I can do it but, do not know how far I am
