    Wow!! That is absolutely beautiful. You English is fine, don't worry about that. I use a translator too. Many people do.

    :welcome1: to the forum, please, post more pictures of your work. I'd love to see pictures of Harps that you have made. I am an amateur violinist.

    The simplicity of your model is awesome. I love this kind of artwork! :)

    bien venido, ven venuto al foro. Welcome to the forum. I believe that you will like your stay here with us. There are a few musical paper instruments out there, but I cannot remember where most of them are but here is a piano, and the musical box inside, can be modified into a harp. http://www.accoutrements.com/shop/pages/fold-up-piano.html Enjoy, post photos, and see you around the forums.

    I think he actually is a "Harp-Maker". I'd love to see the work of a harp maker.


    One of my favorite Violins duets is with a Harp. Ive posted it several times, can't hurt to post it again. Camille St. Saens wrote this when he was 70 years old. I don't think someone young could write a piece like this, in my opinion, there seems to be a lifetimes worth of emotions in there. The key changes are fantastic, as is the time changes. :)

    Is that Harp amplified electronically? The tonal quality was wonderful. I'd like to know more. I ask because to generate that kind of tone outside is incredible, without amplification is unfathomable. :)

    A-HA! no, the harp is not amplified, just well played and well recorded (if recorded is the right word)...

    Yes, it is. Incredible that it can project those sound waves in an open space environment like that! It notes a great knowledge of how sound waves work, most impressive!!:)

    Maybe you could design a simple cardboard unit, so that we can design something at some you help understand the intricacies of this art form. We can brace it where ever it needs bracing. I think some people will appreciate the workmanship that goes into the lovely field. Please. With sugar of top?
