Fixing the harp on the treble side
« on: April 30, 2021, 09:36:55 AM »

I was just wondering.
The positioning of the treble part of the harp.  Is it always best to fix it where the tones ring loudest ?  There is not the same movement space as on the bass side.
It can bemoved between the hammer getting stuck on the tine block and no sound of the small tine. So about maximum an inch / few centimeters.   As the sound of the treble section can not be customised like in the middle section, I always start looking  for the loudest, best ringing treble tones and then fix the harp with one screw.  After that I start shifting / moving the harp  for best tone / strikeline ... not always the loudest tone... but a lot of times, though.  Thanks for advise.
I will turn all my mountains into rhodes.

Yeah, I like to move the treble side around until the tone is the clearest, as well as the bass end. Always try the top notes, lowest notes and some around middle C.
