Where ripples themselves are carrying tune. Haunting and graceful as a loon they swoon. There are seven pedals, each controlling all the strings for a given note in every octave (one controls all the C strings, one controls all the B's, etc.) The pedals have three positions - the bottom position sharp s the strings, the middle position returns them to natural, and the top position turns them flat. By changing the proximity of the guitar to the speaker, the guitarist can produce unique sounds which cannot be done using standard plucking and picking techniques.

One reason you often see wire–strung harpers play with their fingers pointing more directly towards the strings than gut or nylon players is so that their nails will come into better contact with the strings. Of course, if you choose to play with the fingerpads this is not important and you may then choose to use a thumbs–up position.

What is mistakenly referred to as “standard” is generally the Lyon and Healy “concert spacing.” String spacing is any stringed instrument is driven by two factors: the mechanical space required for a given string type to freely vibrate when properly activated and the ergonomics of the human player. The minimum amount of mechanical space required is a mathematically calculate formula , source: Walden Pond: for SATB Chorus, download epub Now, few harp builders are willing to put up with string lengths that are right at the design limit – the harp will just break too many strings.�� Most designers will use a margin of safety and set an arbitrary limit, usually 65-95% of the string’s breaking strength.� Using the equation, and that 95% limit, a designer can produce a table calculating the maximum lengths for each note, for nylon string: Some observations – Bass string lengths greater than 60 or 70 inches are problematic for two reasons.� The harp is unreasonably LARGE (to transport) and the amplitude of the plucked string will require greater spacing to keep it from hitting the adjacent strings or the harpists fingers as she reaches in to pluck an adjacent string.� Spacing greater than 5” per octave or so reduces the player’s ability to play useful intervals like octaves and tenths with the left hand.� Because of these considerations, most designs greater that three or four octaves will employ wound bass strings.� Wound bass strings can be made in a variety of configurations.� The bottom notes of five and six octave harps employ a steel core over-wrapped with bronze or copper wire.� Most strings with a metal core use fiber bedding between the core and wrap.�� The core carries the tension, and the over wrap can dramatically increase the string’s linear mass, allowing a relatively short string to achieve big fat bass notes.� The trick is to come up with a string band that transitions gracefully from monofilament to wound strings without any abrupt changes in string’s tone, length or feel.� formula is still used for wound strings, but calculating the linear mass and becomes more complex.� Joseph Jourdain, Bolles and others have debated some variations on these formulas.� In practice, most harp builders/designers turn to string makers who use computerized programs created by Bolles, Jourdain, Cady or others to do the tiresome calculations for wound strings.� The programs produce tables that list the string’s pitch, length and tension along with two other parameters, %TS and T/L that are useful in string band design.� formula to estimate the tension on the string: The breaking strength of .040 nylon was calculated earlier at 56.0 lbs, so T/L is called the Tension to length ratio and is the strings Tension divided by the length.� Using the same string referenced above, By itself, for an individual string, T/L is not a very useful number.� The idea is that longer strings should have more tension.� If they did not, they would feel floppy relative to shorter strings with the same tension.�� Harpists seem to feel most comfortable with string bands that start with a T/L ratio around 3-6 (Using the English units measurement of lb/in), typically descending to about .8 – 1.0 in the fifth octave.�� When they develop a string table, makers will usually scan down the T/L column looking for any sudden changes.�� There are three good reasons for bass strings to have greater tension than the treble strings.� Most music requires longer ringing chords in the bass end.� To get that sustain, you need to take the initial energy (the pluck) and distribute it over time.� Second, Higher tension limits the amplitude of the plucked strings which allows them to be spaced reasonably close.� Lastly, bass notes need a significant amount of energy to be heard as well as higher notes.�� The speakers that make the bass notes are big and their cones are heavy (relative to a tweeter).� Now, let’s take a look at some harp string bands to see how the TEN% and T/L vary among different designs.� I will start with a vintage Witcher design, a 32 string harp similar to the one shown on the Sylvia Woods book, Teach Yourself to Play the Folk Harp.� With a ruler and micrometer, I can measure the harps’ string lengths and gauges.� The owner readily admitted that these are not the original gauges, and that the harp had been restrung several times.� Using the physical properties of the nylon and Tension; The thinner gauge strings at the treble end only have 12 lbs on tension on them.� The tension climbs fairly evenly up to 43 lbs at the bass end.� All together there is about 840 lbs of tension on the harp ref.: Flute and Harp Concerto - Score
