HARMONIUM TUNING &
An essential part of your harmonium experience depends on proper tuning and operation. Most harmoniums out of India need some TLC to function properly.We offer experienced tuning and repair services at a reasonable rate. Here are the details:
RATES FOR TUNING AND REPAIRS: $40 per hour, 1 hour minimum. Parts are additional if needed. We stock a wide variety of parts but in certain circumstances may have to order them from India . All work is done in a traditional style generally just as in India with a few exceptions.
PACKING FEE: If you ship us your harmonium the packing fee is per hour, usually 1 hour. If better materials are needed to ensure safe arrival back then this is additional.
SHIPPING FEE: We only charge what it costs us to ship your harmonium back to you plus any shipping materials, we DO NOT mark up shipping.
SCALE CHANGER HARMONIUMS: We do not accept scale changer harmoniums via the mail or FedEx, etc. for tuning and/or repair. I'm sorry about this but due to the weight and complicated construction the damage rate is too high. A simple tuning of a scale changer can easily turn into a full rebuild after shipping. It's just too difficult.....You are most welcome to bring your scale changer in person to us in Bonney Lake, WA
GROUPS, YOGA CENTERS, ETC: If you are in the Pacific NW and have a number of instruments then it's possible to arrange a visit to avoid shipping hassles and charges. I require and 8 hour minimum plus travel time anywhere outside of a 100 mile radius of Bonney Lake, WA. Outside of the PNW it's possible as well if there are enough instruments to work on.
SPECIALIZED TUNINGS: Most harmoniums are sharp of A440, I'm happy tune to any mean you would like but it takes longer to do. Generally the harmoniums is tuned to itself, we find the average mean it's tuned to and match the reeds to that. If your reeds have enough material on them then A432 tuning is possible but I don't recommend it as it will decrease the life of your reeds since they have to be thinned out a great deal to achieve this lower tuning. Something to think about but anything is possible within reason.
