Subject: RE: Tech: Good tuner
If you're trying to tune an autoharp, it's always
handy to have a couple of pieces of long thin strips of
felt cloth. You can weave them in the other strings and
damp them as you tune each string. This cuts down on
resonances from them, which can throw a tuner off
(you'll know if the tuner's getting fooled if it tends
to jump back and forth a bit, or shift as the note dies
out).

Cheers,
