The answer on another thread has brought me to this question. Has anyone or do you know of anyone who has even gotten their hair, clothing, body part or whatever stuck in the harp or a musical instrument.
Well, not stuck in the harp exactly, but years ago I was moving a Salvi McFall lever harp I had (on a dolly, but with only the cloth cover on the harp), when I tripped…the harp stayed perfectly still and upright, and my face and upper lip made direct contact against the tuning pins.
Yes, I’ve had hair caught in discs, but usually just one or two strands and nothing a gentle tug has not remedied. I’ve also had bits of furry woollen fingerless mittens caught in the underside of the action. For out door gigs, or practising on cold nights, I use fingerless mittens that are made out of mohair.
