Hi I’m new to harps and I just got my first one, from a Pakistan company named Mikel Celtic which was discussed here. The harp got decent levers(with no rivet) and seems almost unbreakable neck/column; I don’t know if the sound board deforms normal though.
Now my problem is about the string tension. When I broke the E4 at the first tuning I started studying it’s strings chart, as the bottom of this page, and found it’s string tension is pretty heavy(e.g. 16 kg in E4), much heavier than other charts I found in the web. Is the tension reasonable? And if the breaking of B5 at the second tuning is the sign of that I should change it to a lighter string set?
