The Soul of the Harp
The soundboards that we use today are the result of continuous refinement of initial design work that was done in 1990. This initial design, based on graphic finite element analysis of an existing production harp soundboard (L&H Concert Grand), resulted in a series of restored harps that were significantly more responsive and that had a much fuller sound than the same harps with their original soundboards.
On Buying a Harp
Buying a harp can be a complex process. In addition to the obvious issue of expense there are questions of longevity and reliability, stylistic preferences, weight and size considerations, and, to the musician, the overriding concerns of sound quality, projection, and responsiveness.
