Rees Harps Harpsicle Harp, 26 Strings, Black Stain Finish, Made in the USA
Whether it is Katie Targett-Adams effervescing from a stage in China or New Age artist Peter Sterling playing for dolphins off the coast of Bimini or the Bay Area Youth Harp Ensemble raising money to protect ancient redwood trees in Northern California, little, simple Harpsicle Harps are under the hands of creative performers all around the world. Perhaps even more importantly, be it a brand new harp program in Guatemala, or the well established one from the Hong Kong Harp Chamber or the jazz explorations of harp students in Atlanta, Georgia, USA or Irish harp teacher Una N Fhlannagain working to maintain the tradition of the harp in Ireland, the Harpsicle Harp has become a vital part of a rapidly growing harp community around the world. Our customers are taking this most ancient of all stringed instruments, the harp, both back to its roots and forward as they build new traditions for themselves, their families and all those they touch. Certainly, we hope that the people you encounter through this site will help to both inspire and encourage you to find out where you will go with your own Harpsicle Harp.
The Harpsicle Harp has no sharping levers so it is usually tuned in the key of C; however, all you need to play in other keys is the tuning wrench that comes with your harp and a chromatic tuner. After you have had your new harp for a couple of months, the new strings will have stretched and the "belly" on the soundboard will rise.ÊBy then your Harpsicle Harp will hold tune for days at a time. In addition to the tuning wrench, we will send along a string chart and some basic care instructions. Of course, additional information is always available on this site and we remain ready to answer whatever questions you may have to the very best of our ability.
