    I think you’re thinking of pedal harps, Bernhard.

    Hello Bernhard,

    I finally cracked through on my research of “Nickle Silver”

    I assumed you meant pedal harps, Bernhard,

    Bernhard is quite correct Audrey, the tensile strength of the material cannot be ignored…

    Audrey, pg. 10 of Bernhard’s article should be of interest to you…

    “If the load of a string is near up to breaking limit, the
    string will be continous elongatied by the constant
    overload so it has to be compensated by tuning
    again. During the time the string gets more and
    more thinner and weaker until it breaks. This can
    also happen after one year or later. One shouldn‘t
    forget that the stress on the string is not spreaded
    equal because of the friction at the bridge pins. The
    bigger the bend is on the bridge pin the bigger is the
    friction, and the bigger must be the reserver on the
    wire.”

    It all makes sense.

    And Audrey, when we catch you chasing your kids around with a bucket, we will know you have taken the traditional way too far!!

    I wouldn’t be playing wire harp at all, folks, if I didn’t want to play it in the traditional manner.

    Audrey,

    It appears as if you might be upset and that was not my intent and I am sure it was not Bernhard’s.
