A taller harp? I’m 5’0″ and well-endowed in the area you specify and have had no problems–but I’m playing a harp that’s 5’3″. Thanks, BTW. I have been thinking about the Merlin and now I see that it might not work so well for me.
Well, I’m by no means under-endowed, and I have no problems with my harp position. I angle the harp to where it leans slightly more against my right knee, and does not touch my shoulder at all. I found out how to correctly position my harp from an excellent article by Laurie Riley in the Folk Harp Journal. You may want to check into this article- I found it in the Folk Harp Journal CD from Musicmaker’s. Hope this helps!
