Help! I am not sure why my Lyon & Healy Folk Harp is going too sharp each day. Daily , when I return to my harp to play it, I have to retune because it is severely sharp! The harp just started acting this way recently.
I put on new Bow brand strings via a luthier last year and haven’t had any problems since. I expect a string instrument to get flat from time to time and need tuning adjustment, but sharp ###??? And not just by a notch or two on my Seiko tuner. The strings are going almost a full half step sharp. The wire strings aren’t affected – it is all of the gut and nylons that are experiencing this and by the same degree of sharpness.
I sure would like to know what may be causing this. I know my harp is over 10 years old and am afriad it is “coming to an end”. 🙁
Thanks for your help
