Thread Name: How do you tune a harp?
Subject: RE: How do you tune a harp?
The harp was bought off ebay, so unfortunately I don't know the maker and therefore have no way of knowing whether it's any good or not! There's a link in my first post to the guy my GF bought it off - if you can shed any light on its origins I'd be most grateful!
What you were saying about the strings being on backwards (ish) makes perfect sense. However, phone enquiries have directed me to a certain Harriet Earis, who I didn't realise I knew, who's apparently a rather good harper. She's promised to have a look at it when she gets back from the States in a couple of weeks. Don't really want to start messing around with it in the interim in case I do something unpleasant to it, so I suppose I'll just sit and look at it longingly til then!
Thanks so much for all your help - this forum is really something else! If only everyone were like this!
