Over the 37yrs we have been enthusiasts for reed organs, we have built up a wealth of experience, all of which is used to maintain our instruments to a high standard.
Consequently they are highly regarded both in UK and abroad – a Belgian Organist & Harmoniumist commented that the Black Mustel was “a joy to play, being a truly well oiled instrument”.
He was referring to the ease with which the instrument could be played.



“We all enjoyed the Rossini last night and there was a great deal of interest in the Harmonium!
It looked very grand in the Cathedral with its lighted candles and warm rosewood colour. Members of the audience really appreciated being able to talk to Phil about it during the Interval and our organist really enjoyed playing it.
I’m glad the journey to St. Davids went smoothly – we were very impressed by the instrument and all your helpful information on playing it.
Hope you continue to get plenty of custom and we will pass your name on to anyone who might be interested in hiring.
Many thanks and very best wishes to you both on behalf of us all.”

It was a pleasure meeting Phil and the harmonium was superb. Thank you both for doing such a great job for us.

NB This was a special performance of Mahler’s 8 to celebrate the Norwich Philharmonic Society’s 175th Anniversary.

And many thanks for letting us use your instrument – everyone was very pleased with it and I’m sure we’ll come to you again should we have another piece involving harmonium in the future.

Iona Jack    Organiser     Scottish Opera Company     March 2016
It was a great occasion, enhanced by the harmonium, which generated much interest and admiring looks from choir members and audience alike.

Peter Clayton    Chairperson    Hillsingers Wimbledon    March 2016
Friday was a lovely occasion, and it was wonderful to be able to play your Mustel again. It makes making the music so easy, and was sounding brilliant!”

Your system works like clockwork, Phil was most helpful. The concert went extremely well, people were buzzing afterwards!
Chairperson of Choir     December 2015
I was sorry not to say a proper goodbye and thank you after the Rossini performance by the Bury St Edmunds Bach Choir ten days ago. I really appreciated your help, not only in supplying such a great instrument, but also for your friendly advice and support on the day. We were very pleased with the performance and the Mustel did so well, even in such a huge church.
Christopher Moore     Conductor     Bury St Edmunds Bach Choir     November 2015
“I really want to write to say thanks again to both of you. The Service was just as good as I remembered from before, and “Rosie” performed brilliantly. Our harmoniumist, Chris Harris declared himself to be in love within moments of their meeting – I think he’s still devastated that she went back to Yorkshire leaving him behind!

It was a really great concert, and with 120 singers plus two concert grand pianos, it was good to hear how well the harmonium could match the total sound, and yet still have subtle colours and gentler timbres when needed – absolutely brilliant!

Richard Jenkinson    Musical Director     Kent Chorus     April 2015


“Many thanks for the excellent service. I trust that Phil (and Rosie) had a safe journey home.

The harmonium was wonderful and I think we got the balance right in the end so that it was heard and appreciated by the audience. I certainly heard it from where I was standing! Our player enjoyed the challenge of getting to know the instrument.

Should I need a harmonium in the future, there is nowhere else I would consider going. I shall put a little note on the Association of British Choral Directors facebook page letting everyone know about your wonderful service.”

Stephen Smith    Music Director    Corsley Festival Choir    May 2015


Thank you very much for helping us out.  We very much enjoyed using the Debain Harmonium, and it received lots of positive comments.
…. Hope to work with you again in the future.

Director Of Music    Wantage    March 2015


“Thank you so much for being flexible with timings & all the permutations.
It was a real treat to have your instrument.
Our player introduced the instrument and played a couple of pieces explaining the workings.
An added bonus to the concert.

Robyn Sevastos    Music Director    Sevenoaks Philhamonic Society  March 2015


“Thank you so much for the sterling service! Phil asked me why I chose your company…. I was impressed by the fact that you had supplied harmoniums for so many Petite Messes, as it meant that we didn’t have to check suitability of the instrument etc., but also the fact that Phil would be on site through the day meant we didn’t have to worry about finding an in-house expert to deal with minor issues that might arise! Anything that reduces possible little stresses on the day is going to win me over, as the MD is my other half!

Amita Sharma    Orchestral Secretary    Thanet Festival Choir    November 2014


“I want to say a huge thank you for the fantastic support you provided for our Rossini Concert.
The glorious instrument itself, of course, but also the tender, loving care you’ve lavished on it, as well as the delivery and all the supporting material.

Richard Bloodworth    Musical Director    Darlington Choral Society    November 2014


“I wanted to say again how very grateful I am for all your help with the harmonium, given with such generous spirit, thank you!
The harmonium you brought was so lovely and I really did enjoy it! I so enjoyed meeting you and very much hope we’ll see you again. Thank you thank you.
Elizabeth Burley     Principal Keyboard Player     BBC Symphony Orchestra     November 2014


“We were very impressed with your package – arrived on time, installed seamlessly, worked as promised and disappeared almost before the audience had left – and we had Phil to talk to the people at the Interval…….. we will certainly be in touch if we need a harmonium and will recommend you if we get the opportunity”
Nick Feldman     Ipswich Chamber Choir     November 2014


“…. Phil provided everything we could have wished for and the Harmonium was the star of the concert.

We have had so many appreciative comments to that effect. Please thank Phil also for giving such helpful advice to Daniel, our keyboard player, who really enjoyed the challenge.

If we decide to play repertoire with harmonium again we won’t hesitate to ask you.”
Paul Barritt     Tring Chamber Music     July 2014


“The harmonium was really excellent; after a lot of experimentation (mostly with the expression stop), I found I was able to achieve nearly all of what I wanted! Which was not at all what I expected and is testament to the excellence of the instrument’s condition and the care with which you have restored it. One audience member said he was ‘totally converted’ to the sound of the harmonium after hearing the Mahler…”

Jan Waterfield     Harmonium Player     Northern Sinfonia Chamber Group     July 2014


“Many thanks for your wonderful service – the harmonium was beautiful and (our harmoniumist) certainly enjoyed playing it. It has been great to work with you both, thank you for making it such a smooth-running process.

I hope we can work with you again soon.”

Lucy Campion- Orchestra/Ensemble Manager,    Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama Cardiff    February 2014


“The gig was a great success and we received a number of correspondence regarding the concert.

The Harmonium was superb and Darren (Hogg) enjoyed playing it, Rossini Petite isn’t quite the same without one!

Hiring such an instrument from yourselves was painless and a pleasure. I will not hesitate in recommending you or using you again.”

Anthony Thomas Rose    Conductor Uttoxeter Choral Society    November 2013


…the Harmonium was a huge success. Thanks from me, from Christopher Harris (our Harmoniumist) and from all at London Orpheus Choir.
We were really grateful to you both for getting this organised at such incredibly short notice. And especially to Phil for his very prompt, reliable and efficient service, and for all his help and guidance in placing and use of the instrument on the day – that really did help in achieving a superb performance – his love of and enthusiasm for the instrument was certainly very infectious!

Richard Jenkinson  Conductor  London Orpheus Choir  October 2013


“Thanks so much for your help – you have really saved the day”
Angharad Cooper    Projects Officer    Opera North    October 2012


“The harmonium is the ‘harmonic glue’ for the group. It’s gorgeous”
