Harmonium - Tirupati Kirtan Premium mini
The Tirupati Kirtan Premium Mini is a smaller version of the Kirtan Premium model which is particularly suitable for travelling. Despite its simple construction the instrument is sturdy. High-quality double reeds provide a full, warm sound and for its small size it has an amazingly good sustain. A good choice for beginners as well as for ambitious kirtan singers.
With the Kirtan Premium Mini, the outer bellows are firmly attached and do not have to be opened and secured with hooks. This makes the entire folding mechanism considerably less sensitive and easier to operate. When folded, the entire instrument is protected in an integrated sturdy wooden box.

* Pine wood is the first choice for harmoniums around Delhi and in North Western India. It is much softer than teak wood, which is more common in Mumbai and Calcutta. Therefore pinewood harmoniums often get little dents or scratches during manufacturing, storage or transit to Europe. Such marks are a natural property of the wood and can not be seen as flaws or defects.
TIRUPATI is the international brand name for instruments from Sharma Musicals in Ghaziabad, a neighbouring city of Delhi. Sharma Musicals was founded in 1934 by Jagdish Prasad Sharma and is today one of the leading Indian harmonium makers. The current manager Mayank Sharma runs the business in the fourth generation. Thanks to solid infrastructure, long experience and good quality awareness, Sharma Musicals is a reliable supplier of all harmonium models typical of Delhi and North-West India. Instruments from Sharma Musicals are also marketed in the USA and are sold there under the name Bhava Harmonium. They are recommended by renowned kirtan teacher Daniel Tucker.
