This is the third post in our harp amplification for beginners series. (We tried to make it the last one but it just got too long, so we split it up.) The first post talked about the differences between microphones and pickups, and the second post explained the details of the Dusty Harp Pickup. This one and the next one will get you familiar with the equipment that actually amplifies the sound that is captured by your microphone or pickup, as well as the stuff that connects it all together.

How do you give someone a pickup recommendation for their harp when you’ve tried just about every pickup out there and none of them have been all that satisfying? For us, the answer was to go to work developing our own. We thought there must be a way to get a more focused, even and natural sound from a harp pickup, and after much engineering and experimentation, we felt like we achieved it.

People ask us frequently about the best way to amplify their harp, and there is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Everyone’s situation is different (needing a bit of a boost for outdoor weddings vs. competing for volume in a rock band), and the best solution depends on a number of factors. We’re not experts on live sound, but we do know a lot about harps in particular and we’ve found that for many harpists, the world of amplification is a new and daunting place full of unfamiliar terms. So we’re doing a short series of posts for harpists new to this world that will hopefully get you oriented and help you figure out in what direction to begin looking.
