Subject: RE: Help: Autoharp Models: History
The model and the years you are referring to Susan, are my favorite! There is one in that year range that I think has trouble with the A# staying in tune, if I recall but I can't remember which one it is. Anyway, I buy them whenever I find one and have them redone by Mark Fackeldy.
The one I spoke about recently is in that year range Model "B". Some of my B models have some caving in around the soundhole but it doesn't seem to change the sound and Mark says he likes that characteristic although I don't know why!!!
I love those instruments!!! I pay up to $115 for them and anything under that is a great bargain, in my opinion, if it's playable.
