There again, if the Lord was feeling ill or sad, the harper had to sooth his feelings. Generally speaking, smaller harps will have lower string tension than larger harps, but even in harps of roughly the same size instruments by different makers can have markedly different tension. I soldered the photocells to small pieces of perf board for easier mounting. Bags are intentionally made durable to cope with the busy use and transport of the instrument in its lifetime Soundboard Decoration: This is optional feature available on the harp’s soundboard, which is usually the same colour as the Harp.

A hard case is included with the instrument. Structural Analysis of Folk Harps: The folk harp is a deceivingly simple instrument.� The earliest carvings and drawings of a recognizable three sided harp date to 8th century Europe.� Given that their ancient pedigree and simple form, just how complex can they be?� Turns out, from a structural standpoint, they are pretty sophisticated.� In this article, I am not going to try to delve deeply into the acoustics behind what makes a harp�s tone somber and dark, or light and clear.� This was written to give the new builder or designer an understanding of the materials, mechanics and forces at work in a common folk harp.� There are several basic components of the folk harp.� For purposes of this discussion, I will use a basic 36 string Celtic Model � one of the most widely produced and played instruments in the folk harp world.� The Strings: Besides generating initial vibrations that drive the harp�s sound, strings generate tension.� That tension must be resisted by the frame of the harp.� Most harps have string tensions that range form 15 � 60 lbs on each string.� Twenty five pounds of tension is a good average for a medium tension folk harp, So the entire harp would have about 900 pounds of tension.�� The Pins: Folk harps have bridge pins and tuning pins.� Tuning pins rotate to change string tension.� Most harps use traditional tapered pins.� I have used both piano or Zither type pins, and they seem to work as well in necks built of harder woods like maple and cherry.� Bridge pins are used to level the strings.� As the strings stretch over time, the additional wraps over the tuning pin usually move the string towards the neck.� The bridge pins ensure that the harpists fingers don�t trip over a high or low string.� Positioning of the bridge pin relative to the tuning pin: Most builders try to make the string deflect 15 to 25 degrees as it passes over the bridge pin.� If the angle is too small, the harpist may pluck it right off of the pin.� If it is too large, several bad things can happen:� The string will not slide readily over the pin making tuning difficult.� At acute angles the pin can crush the wood fibers in the neck.� They can become lose and may shift up or down.�� Finally, on wound strings, thin outer windings can crush and break under the load, ruining an expensive string.

Included with the new Prelude 40 are a scalloped bronze-finished crown and matching claw feet, as well as a classically turned wooden crown and stylized feet. Several other European brands really fell short. The 36 has two additional strings at the top of the harp, and I have found that the bass register of the 36 harps usually sounds superior to the bass register of the 34 harps – because the body of the 36 harp is larger.

Instruments like the West African kora and Mauritanian ardin are sometimes labeled as "spike harp", "bridge harp", or "harp lute" since their construction includes a bridge which holds the strings laterally, vice vertically entering the soundboard. [23] While lyres and zithers have persisted in the Middle East, most of the true harps of the region have become extinct, though some are undergoing initial revivals.

My first influence as I recall was probably Bill Clifton, Mike Seeger, Tom Paley & of course The Carter Family. Who better to go round, be welcomed into halls, and gather information?
