We just returned from the Southeastern Harp Weekend in Asheville, NC and thought we'd share some photos of the experience from a harp-maker's perspective. We came home exhausted, but with hearts full of smiles and stories form the harpists we met, and heads full of ideas and inspiration from our fellow builders.

Have you ever come across a particularly gorgeous instrument with a wonderfully lush tone and fallen instantly in love? Maybe you were looking, or maybe you were just wandering along minding your own business when you were struck by Cupid’s arrow.

Help! I can't get both sides of the treble bridge in tune! Everyone who plays the hammered dulcimer will at some point or other come across some variation of this problem. There are simply too many strings on the darned thing for tuning to be smooth and easy every time, and it can be quite frustrating when you can get one side or the other of the treble bridge in tune, but not both sides at the same time. The good news is that (assuming your hammered dulcimer is structurally sound) you can most likely solve the problem yourself!
