    Thank you all for your responses! Wil, I took your advice and put the recorder in a cold place (a freezer, I don’t have a cellar) for about 2 hours. My husband had to use a strap tool that is used to wrap around jar lids to open jars to get a good grip, we let it sit for about 15 minutes and at first it wouldn’t move, but after a few minutes of trying it started to turn and he got it apart. Now he is going to try sanding the cork down to allow the pieces to go together so it can be put together and taken apart with proper ease. Just a few small scratches but no damage. And thank you Balfour and Charles for your help, also. I very much appreciate it.

    Thank you, Charles. I agree playing with repeats again would be just long and boring, and anyone listening would be wondering when is it going to finally end?

    Thank you Talfryn and Gretchen for the information, I don’t know anything about amplification equipment. It makes sense to me now, especially after seeing the picture of the Dusty Strings clamp.
    Do I understand correctly: the Big Twin with the external jack connector doesn’t need the additional Dusty Strings clamp? And the external jack connector is just as good as the internal?
    And does anyone have recommendations for an inexpensive amp? It would be used in smaller spaces, not any big concert areas.
    Thanks again!

    I’m glad to learn about the K&K Big Twin pick-ups, it sounds like something I’ve been looking to find to amplify my Lyon & Healy Prelude harp. I have a couple of questions:
    1. the K&K website said the pick-ups come with adhesive film for attachment, so I’m wondering if the adhesive doesn’t work well and that’s why Talfryn drilled into the harp for attaching them
    2. what is the difference between the internal and external jack? Is one preferred over the other?
    Thanks for the info –

    Speaking of French websites, does anyone know of a discussion forum on harps, just like our Harp Column we’re using, in the French language??
