Harpists in Derbyshire
Harp music has captivated audiences for centuries, with its tone and sound simply unmistakably unique compared to all other instruments. With 47 strings and six and a half octaves on a concert harp, it’s an incredibly difficult instrument to play and it’s for that reason that it is such a highly respected instrument.
Weighing in at around 80 pounds, the typical concert harp is over six feet tall, making it quite a cumbersome (not to mention expensive!) instrument. Not only are there 47 strings, but each of those notes can have their pitch changed half a note, either sharp or flat, using the seven pedals at the bottom of the harp. Even a piano only usually has two pedals, and they aren’t used to change the pitch.
The string tension on the harp is also astounding — around 2,000 pounds, equivalent to a ton-force. This sort of craftsmanship is simply unmatched with any other instrument, making the harp truly incredible in every way.
We have a number of very talented harpists in Derbyshire, available to play at your wedding or event at surprisingly good prices.
