Thanks a lot Tea, that’s exactly what I wanted to hear. I know that on a lap harp you can play only a small part of your repertoire, but that’s enough since it would be just a whim. I often play in castles or Renaissance fairs, I’ve always been using my 34 strings floor harp, but it’s definitely too big and too heavy to carry up and down. That’s why I’m considering the idea of a smaller harp, wich would be enough for a medieval repertoire.
I take it that you have nylon strings on your harp…interesting, I was thinking about gut strings to have a better, mellow tone.
