Reeds - The reeds are a thin brass tongue set into the opening of a thicker brass base.

Each base is roughly 1/4 inch by 2 inches.

The thin tongue vibrates when air passes through the opening.

Small thin reeds have a higher pitch than wider longer thicker reeds.

Coupler - This relatively simple device physically connects, or couples, two keys.

The result is that playing one key engages two reeds simultaneously.

One key will play two reeds that are one octave apart.

The coupler may be engaged or disengaged by the user.

The harmonium is widely accepted in Indian music.

There will be at least one harmonium in any mandir (Hindu temple) or gurdwara (Sikh temple) around the world.
