Does anyone know the proper name for the metal ‘brace’ thing that that sits across the centre sound hole on the back of the harp? On Style 23s and 11s it’s quite ornate whereas on Salzedos, 100s, and 30s it’s quite plain.
I know that some people strap a tuning to them with a leather pouch.
I can’t for the life of me find what the proper name is that, for instance, Lyon and Healy would call it by.
Thank you so much in advance if anyone can answer.
