How to Tune Your Harp

by | Nov 23, 2010 | Uncategorized | 3 comments

I have made several segments from my DVD, Harp Care with Steve Moss, available for free as YouTube videos. These two together make up the harp tuning segment. I demonstrate the mechanics of tuning lever harps in both the Key of C Major and the key of Eb Major, as well as tuning a pedal harp in the flat position to Cb Major. If you’re struggling with the task of tuning your harp, these are the videos for you.

    I find it easier to tune the strings in the higher registers with harmonics in the lower registers. 🙂

    What is Harp’s I pedal tuning for Debussy’s “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun?” – Thanks you

      Sorry, I don’t know. I’m not a harpist. I only service and repair them 🙁
