The Pakrashi Compactina is an especially slim harmonium in an attractive natural wood design. Thanks to its unique construction, the Compactina is only half as deep as a normal box harmonium and considerably lighter - without a potentially failure-prone folding mechanism! In addition, it impresses with very good workmanship and a silk matt surface treatment that allows the natural wood characteristics to come to the fore. Ideal for musicians who are looking for an instrument of particularly high quality with a full range, round sound and noble appearance for regular use and who also want to take it on the road.

Manufacturer / Supplier

Pakrashi & Co. is a harmonium maker from Calcutta with a rich heritage. The company was founded in 1922 by the brothers Sudhir Chandra Pakrashi and Hem Chandra Pakrashi. In 1978 Sudhir's son Suphal Pakrashi took over the management. In the meantime Sudhir's grandson Suvojit Pakrashi is the third generation of the family to run the business. Pakrashi is known for high quality and groundbreaking innovations. Among other things, Pakrashi invented moveable keyboards (scale-changers) and folding mechanisms for harmoniums. The most recent development is the use of plastic instead of wood for the keys' sticks.This allows the production of exactly fitting sticks for all keys. They do not warp due to climatic fluctuations or aging. India Instruments already had Pakrashi Harmoniums in their assortment temporarily in the 1990s. After a longer break, we are offering Pakrashi harmoniums again since 2020.
