Thread Name: Autoharp tuning
Subject: RE: Autoharp tuning
I have one of the el cheapo six-bar autoharps from about 100 years ago that serious autoharpers laugh at. I suspect the only string that's been changed is one I replaced because it was broken. I did clean the strings thoroughly, though. (And replaced the felts).
It stays in tune almost indefinitely.
I'm thinking of retuning it D Eb F# G A Bb c d to accompany klezmer tunes in the "freygish" mode.
