Sometimes you can end up down the strangest paths when looking on the internet, and during a late night browse, just by chance I came upon the harp maker Otto Zangerle and his harps.
Your eyes are not deceiving you it's a 6x6 chromatic Tyrolean harp. But he builds even more curious harps...
He is patenting a double neck harp design... details here
But the harp that makes my mind boggle the most is this one where you can have the option of all the pedals on one side (?) so that you can change the pedals when playing the harp standing up with one foot (?)
If anyone has seen any of these harps in real life, or has heard them being played I would LOVE to know more about them.
If you haven't had a good browse around the website then buckle up and have a good browse at these innovative Austrian harps.

If you enjoy reading Harpyness and you'd like to buy me a virtual coffee that would be very welcome. Cheers!
