I have been looking for material (books, periodicals,etc.) with information (as detailed as possible) about folk harp design, and what
elements must be taken into consideration when designing and/or building a harp.
Last weekend in music instrument building workshop/class, I came across a book called “Folk Harps”
there is a group call harpmakers at yahoogroups…they talk about harp plans, books, and custom designs…join them!
I have a copy of Folk Harps by Gildas Jaffrennou and could have a copy made as a bound book for around $60 plus shipping which would come to around $15 (as I live in Japan). Let me know. –Don Kenny
There’s a copy of this book on abebooks.
“Musicmakers” has a very detailed book on harp design and construction. —-or just order a set of his plans and build and learn.
Is it at all possible for you to arrange a copy for me of “Folk Harps” by Gildas Jaffrenou. I live in Australia and am an apprentice for a Harp maker here.
It is also very important to consider in case of design related to diamond jewelry. Will surely give a great assumption if taken wisely.
I have been searching for designs related to diamond jewelry for my wedding occasion. Hope you assist me some of them other than harp.
