up to large instruments with ornate cases, up to a dozen
stops and other mechanisms such as couplets. Expensive
harmoniums were often built to resemble pipe organs, with
ranks of fake pipes attached to the top of the instrument.
Small numbers of harmoniums were

built with two manuals (keyboards).
Some were even built with pedal keyboards, which required
the use of an assistant to run the bellows or, for some of the
later models, an electrical pump. These larger instruments

were mainly intended for home use, such as allowing organists

In a foot-pumped harmonium, the player presses/
two pedals with his or her feet, one at a time. This is joined
to a mechanism which operates a bellows, sending air to
the reeds. In this way, both of the player’s hands are free

to play the keyboard. This type was invented in 1842 by/
Alexandre Debain of Paris, although similar instruments/
have been made in other places around the same time.

In a hand-pumped harmonium, the player pushes and/
pulls a handle back and forth with one hand, which is joined/
to the bellows that blows the air. Because of this, he or she/
can only use one hand to play the keys as the other has to

keep pumping the bellows. Some players can pump enough/
air with one hand, and then play the keys with both hands,
when necessary.

The hand-pumped harmonium was created by Anathema /
Hose so that the instrument could be played while the player /
was sitting down on the floor. It is used in India, Pakistan, Nepal/
Afghanistan and in other Asian countries as an accompanying
instrument in Hindustani classical music, Sufi
