I have just signed up for the forum so not quite sure if this is the right place to post this. 🙂
My name is Evangeline, I’m 17 and I started teaching myself harp about six months ago (having previous experience with piano) on a small nylon strung folk harp and now I am looking to progress up to a pedal harp. The problem that I have is that I am a vegetarian so I don’t really want to have to use gut strings.
I have tried searching around the internet but can’t really find any information as to weather there is another type of string that could be used instead. I was wondering if you had any suggestions as to an alternative?
I understand that you have to have a certain gauge string depending on what harp type and model you have to avoid damage to the soundboard.
Thanks in advance. 🙂
