Topic 51 : Comparison of 22-Shruti Harmonium with other instruments


Dr. Vidyadhar Oke   These instruments are either required to be tuned by Ear every time they are played, and/or, they require an exceptional skill to play correct notes consistently. As against this, the 22-Shruti-Harmonium is tuned with the help of a Synthesizer which gives accurate notes, and there is no need of tuning every time it is played. Further, in anyone's hand, the keys in the 22-Shruti-Harmonium would always produce the tuned accurate note.

It can be said on a lighter tone that, in the race of musical instruments, traditional Harmonium was the last; and now the 22-Shruti-Harmonium has overtaken all the instruments like a horse coming ahead from behind in a horce-race, and now should be leading from the front.
