    Hello Everyone,

    I have a harp that was handed down to me and I don’t know what kind of harp it is (the photo of the harp is my profile picture). It has 30 strings and it does not have a pedal. If anyone can help me identify this harp, I would really appreciate it because I would like to start playing it! Thank you in advance.

    Hi – That’s a Paraguayan harp, or at least a harp based on one. You turn the mechanical pieces on top to tune the strings. The tension is lighter than a lever harp and much lighter than a pedal harp.

    Take a look inside the sound box. There will often be a sticker with a company name and a serial number in there.
