Hello fellow harpists!
I am thinking of buying a particular harp. I like it, but my issue is that the strings go out of tune very soon after I tune them. The owner of the harp says it hasn’t been played in about 3 years and believes this is why. I know that is problem is usually found when you put brand new strings on a harp, but don’t know if this is common with old, unused strings. So do you think that they go out of tune very quickly (i.e. Within a minute of tuning, 3 x in a row), or is it a poor quality harp?? It appears and feels to be of good quality, but I am unable to ascertain whether it sounds good, as it keeps going out of tune before I play it!
