Subject: RE: Help: Autoharp Models: History
I have a Zimmerman harp with shifters which is in playable shape..(or was the last time I tried it)...I even manage to play it MotherMaybelle style. It is quite fascinating, but I do see why they got away from shifters...it would require constant tweaking and adjusting, and did not have a good system for guiding the chord bars up & down, just used little wood shims at the ends.
