Thread Name: Autoharp Restringing
Subject: RE: AUTOHARP RESTRINGING
Ha- Susan. Jimi Hendix of the harp? I guess I can't imagine playing it upside down. But whatever's right for you! Regarding strings, my never fail method involves changing them only every ten to fifteen years. This is because the last time I changed them, it took me about eight hours.
If I played the autoharp more regularly, I'm sure I would own a nicer harp, which would probably give me a different perspective. In such a case, I think I'd have to agree with you Susan, and let the shop do it. There are many services well worth paying others to do, and I think changing the strings on an autoharp is in this category. Thanks, BlueJay
