Audrey, we are all waiting! How does he sound? Are you happy with the tone, just might put one of these together if you are. All best.
I’m tempted to order those Alaska piks myself, Liam! I usually play with the finger pads (eek!) and use the dreaded hitchhiker hand position (double-eek!). But I may break from “non-tradition” and attempt using these piks. Should I use the brass or plastic? I’m leaning towards plastic since it appears they offer these in small- my hands are tiny…
I went all the way up to pitch twice yesterday, and actually got it to hold long enough to play a simple tune.
We did have to take one set of the strings off because one of the pins was out significantly farther than the others, causing one of the strings to be completely offset, and putting a lot of stress on the pin.
Are you referring to the Clarsach society- wire division? I tried joining them too a while back and you’re right, they are complicated. Maybe we could start a wire-strung harp section on this forum. (Along with a do-it-yourself builder’s section!).
