...or use Dr. Scholls foot pads.
Pat, it's the laminate that I think makes those harps sound weird. Doesn't it make them sound tinny???? I do think that model is the best one to amplify if you go electric and I think that's the one Susan uses in her electric church band, right Susan? That's why I like the earlier models with just some red varnish or whatever it is and we always rub that off so the wood can breathe and sing.
You can see the fire in their woods when the red finish is rubbed off.
Bryan Bowers likes George Orthey's harps real well and so do many other people. I like Mark's better than anyone else's. harpgirl
