My harp was nearly silent no matter how hard I tried to get a nice sound out of it. I played one as a kid so I knew how it was supposed to work and sound.
It turns out that the gap between the prongs was way too wide. I put the harp in a vice and squeezed it down so that the tongue (twanger) had just enough room to vibrate without hitting the arms/prongs (rougly a 1mm gap on either side). Now it sounds really great. If yours is quiet, maybe give this a try before throwing it away - good luck!
If you're new to harping, buy one of these as your first harp, but once you get familiar with it, consider one of the hand-made ones by Bill Gohring [...] they come pre-tuned to whatever you request, and I've had mine now for almost 10 years and it's never broken. Even the Snoopy harp gave up the ghost after 2-3 (but, hey, $6!). Also, ask him if he still has the bamboo harps -- they're a definite challenge to play, but what fun!
Very nice, especially at this price!
Cons: the part you flick with your forefinger is pretty heavy and it feels heavy on your teeth. I played it a little throughout the day and front teeth feel weird today, like I am pressing on them. I'll not play this instrument often. It's sort of scary to play. I'm not talking about my teeth being hit by the vibration mechanism, I'm talking about how my teeth feel after having played the instrument according to the direction. I can't imagine this one being professional grade.Hard on the teeth: the vibration apparatus is thick and makes for playing "heavy" and might damage your teeth with chronic playing.
Next time: Next time I'll but Note to producer: It'd be neat if the box it came in was a tin one. That's be good for holding coins, bandages or making a portable sewing kit or even a survial kit [all thought it wouldn't be water proof]
You have to put it up against your front teeth with your tongue and lips away from the middle prong. Wrap your lips over the outer pegs as much as you can without touching the middle prong,you will have to move it around a bit to get the best loudest sound. Slightly opening your moth and closing it will make different notes. Then pick away. When you breathe in and out through your mouth it creates a louder different tone.
For the price I would say get it,especially if its your first. It only takes a few minutes to adjust it.
Note:If you don't hold it against your teeth hard enough it will rattle your teeth and hurt a little. Don't push it hard against your teeth but also don't press too soft. Just enough to keep it in place and prevent it from rattling. My teeth felt a little weird after doing this for a while,it vibrates them a little. I don't think it damaged them but your teeth might have to get used to the vibrating.

I bought three of these, it looked so easy on youtube to use I thought my 4 and 5 year old could do it, they love music. It's a cheap and sturdy instrument so I went for it. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Emily E.
