A harp you can pack in your suitcase?
What a great idea for keeping your fingers in shape whilst away on holiday!
I love the way it fits in the suitcase, although that does look like a pretty big suitcase.
Pretty nifty travel harp made by Don Peddle of randomsound music in Canada and it sounds ok as well.
This looks extremely cool - a new electric harp which has a bridge and more bass end - so a cross between bass guitar and harp? These are really going to take off.
Unfortunately not much in the way of videos on the internet at the moment which showcase the possibilities of what you can do with it, with slides and bending notes, but no doubt there will be soon. I really like the way you can wear it like a guitar as well as a harp.
Very cool photos of Remy van Kesteren playing one on the Delta Harps Facebook page
A fantastic video from Erin Hill, with some pretty awesome production!
Erin and her psychedelic harp, (otherwise known as a black Big Blue Camac harp) has made this video as result of crowd funding through Kickstarter and has a new funding scheme to make more videos through a tax-deductible scheme in the US.
I hope she gets to do more videos from her album as they are great songs and she also has the funkiest of CD cover designs, which is available to purchase here
Come on British Government, why don't we have tax-deductible schemes for sponsoring the arts here in the UK?
What a great idea! A clever clip on tuner embedded onto a tuning key by Dusty Strings - very nifty!
The concert version fits Lyon & Healy, Camac, Salvi harps etc. The universal has an adapter to fit all types of harps, not sure how strong and effective that would be though.
What I like the most is that the tuner can be tilted with your thumb to get better viewing angle whilst you are tuning, as well as the usual things like calibration and standard LED display you can see in the dark.
At $85 for the concert harp version that's not a bad price, and it's available fromSylvia Woods Centre. Birthday present anyone??
