I was talking to another harpist today, and she mentioned something about putting a sponge in her harp. I have to say, I was a bit surprised when she said this and she looked at me with an equally surprised look and said “Don’t you?” Quite frankly, I have never heard of this. I have both a pedal and a lever harp. Two questions: 1) What would be the purpose of putting a wet sponge in a valuable harp? 2) Should I be doing this?
Any thoughts, comments, suggestions would be much appreciated!
