Thread Name: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
Subject: RE: $$ for Vintage Autoharp?
I prefer the A model 'harps with the strings that attach over end pins. I own two black boxes and two Appalachians from the mid-sixties, two with wooden bars and two with metal bars. I have them all set up as diatonics. None of these cost me more than $40 Cdn. I got one at a flea market, one at a garage sale, one at a music store and one was given to me in pieces after I played a show. I used instructions in the (now defunct) Autoharpoholic magazine to convert them. My favourite is a '67 Appalachian set up as a D/G semi-diatonic.
