    Have a new Lyon & Healy Prelude coming. The only place to put it is on a rug. Would prefer putting it on the hardwood floor for the sound.
    Any suggestions about something to put on the rug before putting the harp on that?
    What would reflect the sound and maybe pick up vibrations?
    Think plywood might be painted to reflect sound, but it would not pick up vibrations in my opinion?
    Suggestions?

    Check an office supply store like Office Depot. They sell roll up wood mats to go under chairs. Or Google desk chair mats.

    Thank you. Should have thought of that myself.

    That was a good suggestion, Gretchen. Charles, you could also build, or have built, a raised wooden platform for the harp and yourself (on a stool or bench) to sit on, that would pick up the vibrations and reflect the harp’s sound. I have used variations of these platforms for outdoor events many times with great success. I see no reason why one would not work even better indoors!

    Happy New Year!

    My teacher, Lucile Lawrence, had a large piece of hard acrylic on the floor under the harp.

    A Walmart cutting board works under my Prelude.

    Anne, I use a nice Walmart acrylic cutting board for rolling out and cutting pastry, biscuits, rolls, cookies, etc. It is so convenient! I bet it would work beautifully under the Prelude, too!

    Happy baking, and harp hugs,
    Balfour (and Carol Lynn)
