Dear Happy Harpist:

All the previous responses sound good, but as an adult, you did not reveal your height. If you get a harp of 47 strings and the harp is too big for your size, or the top A string is nowhere near your eye, or your left arm cannot comfortably reach out to play all of the bass strings, or your pedals are too high off the floor or too far apart for you to finally have fluency of foot motion–you get the idea. You need to be physically comfortable, and not have too much weight on your right shoulder. Physicians are seeing more and more people who have practiced a lot on a harp that has given them shoulder damage, etc. There are many 47-string harps now for sale in classified ads,
