Carbon fiber versus nylon strings?

Posted In: How To Play

  • Participant on #211436

    I would like to know which would have a lighter string tension, a Grand harpsicle or a Camac Lite 32 Electric harp?

    The reason I am asking is I am a violinst who had tendonitis. I want to learn to play the harp but don’t want to hurt my hand again.

    One harpist I met on line told me the carbon fiber strings were lighter in tension, while another article I read on line said that the carbon strings were a higher tension.

    Could someone please help me out?

    Thank you!

    Who you study with is going to be the most-critical factor in your future as a harpist. How old are you, and are you trying to become professional, or just play for pleasure? Unless you plan on playing rock music, I would never consider an electric harp.
