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.
