Thread Name: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
Subject: RE: Tech: Autoharp Bar Felt - Quality
after years of aspiring to own
a genuine oscar schmidt electric autoharp
I finally resigned myself
to the high expense of personaly importing
one from the US to UK.
I finally did it..
scoured internet for a fair priced seller
stumped up the cash for extortionate customs tax & VAT.
waited anxiously for it to be shipped safely..
got it out the box..

made in china !!!..

rough workmanship..
dead sounding top C string..
sounds worse acousticly than my korean made Gremlin
from Hobgoblin..

sod Oscar Schits iconic legendary reputation for quality!!!!
