instruments from india

we speak the language of the instrument, of the maker and of the buyer

Manish has been working personally for 25 years with makers of Indian instruments, which started when he was living in Pune and was an instrument dealer, mainly for western visitors who were interested in Indian music but didn't know where to find the best genuine makers.  Having a personal relationship to the makers in India, he finds the best quality instruments of all kind from India. That is why this is a very reliable source of quality and cost.

 

We are not barely a 'commercial shop', we love Indian music and Indian instruments.

Before you buy a Harmonium, be aware that some popular brands which have become a little famous due to some western singers, are very low quality brands as per Indian instruments standards.

Below are some of our most popular harmoniums and other instruments. If you have in mind a specific instrument or style, please consult with us and we can send it from India in 1 week, providing the model is available (otherwise it has to be manufactured and it will take 2 to 3 weeks.)

We suggest you send us a mail explaining your interest and experience so we can guide you personally on the best option for you. namaste@manishvyas.com

INSTRUMENT ORDERS CANNOT BE COMPLETED IN THIS ONLINE STORE,  SIMPLY BECAUSE WE DON'T BELIEVE AN INSTRUMENT CAN BE PUT IN A SHOPPING-BAG WITHOUT CAREFULLY CONSIDERING YOUR NEEDS AND CHOOSING THE BEST OPTION. PLEASE WRITE A MAIL AND EXPLAIN YOUR INTEREST. MANISH WILL PERSONALLY ADVISE THE POSSIBILITIES AND COSTS.

Besides Harmonium, other popular Indian instruments like Tabla, Percussions, Tanpura, Tanpuri, Santoor, Harp are also available.
