Thread Name: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
Subject: RE: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
My 11 year old grandson found my old autoharps that have been stashed away for years. He's a very good musician for his age. So, I've decided to re-do them and found this site to look at and get tips from. I was amazed to see such great advice and links that led me to watch Kilby Snow and show my grandson.
I've ordered strings, felt, and springs from D'Aigle, and am playing a bit to get back the feel.
My question is, when the time comes that I replace the felt, is it unheard of to simpley mark where the old was and then cut the exact size and glue in the olds place?
I'm trying to make it a simple for myself as I can and any advice you might share on that would be so great.
Thanks and it's been such an inspitiation to read your posts.
