I had forgotten that I still have an old autoharp that I must have gotten in the 1960's. I had 2 Schmidt autoharps after that. It is Appalachian style,small, has no markings of any kind. Who might have made these back then?

Tigger the Tiger- I suggest you post as much information about your autoharp as you can; number of strings, dimensions, chording, etc. to make it easier for 'Catters to help you identify your instrument. Google's Images function may be useful.

You may find some helpful information already posted on Mudcat while you wait for a reply. On the "Lyrics and Knowledge" homepage, type "autoharp" into the Filter box and change the time span to "All". You'll have many happy hours wandering in and out of the long list of Autoharp threads that will result.

Good luck!

If it's 1960s, black, with a red rose decal, it's likely to be a Hopf (I have one myself). There was a lot of them about and they were cheap.
