Most Helpful Customer Reviews

I have had this instrument for about a year. I got it because I play harp and I wanted a small inexpensive hack around harp that was easy to carry around and had a decent sound. This lute harp has three octaves. The strings are nylon and color coded with red Cs and blue Fs. The lowest note is middle C. The highest note is 3 Cs above that. It has tapered harp tuning pins and bridge pins. It seems to me that sharping levers could be added fairly easily, but I haven't done that. I usually play it with our local mountain dulcimer society, and tune it to the key of D by sharping all the Cs and Fs because the dulcimer folks play in that key. The instrument stays in tune very well and there is no slippage of the tuning pins. The tone is lovely with good sustain and volume for such a small instrument. The one drawback is that it isn't really a harp. It is a lyre and due to its size it is hard to play it with traditional harp technique. Also, it is made so that you should play it like a lyre: blocking unwanted strings with your left hand and strumming with your right. I play melody with my right hand and chords/accompaniment with my left. My brother made a small stand to help it stay upright so I can use harp technique on it. I also attached a strap so I can walk around to play it if I want to. Over all it serves my purpose and I love it. I got mine off of Ebay. The price here is about right, but I got mine cheaper, due to its having a minor cosmetic flaw.
