    I have a Salvi Dalphne, brown, and i was wondering how i could clean it besides a simple damp cloth. Is Pledge allowed? wood polish? i don’t want to ruin the sound or finish of my harp, but it’s got a few nicks and scuffs that need removing

    Thanks!

    Not Pledge. There’s a special harp polish put out by [Lyon & Healy?] that’s supposed to be good. In a pinch, a guitar polish will do as well. You’re not supposed to use polish too often–that’s to avoid buildup.

    there’s special polish for Salvi’s ‘Penthouse Polish’.

    Nicks and scuffs do not get removed by cleaning. You need to have someone who is well versed in wood refinishing to spot finish or rub out those problems. It doesn’t have to be someone knowledgeable about the harp. Just someone who knows refinishing.
