What Kind Of Instrument Does The Harp Belong To?

- Sep 02, 2019-

The harp is a large plucked instrument that is the oldest stringed instrument in the world. The early harp only had strings arranged in natural scales, and the tonality was limited. The modern harp was designed by French piano maker S. Elal in 1810. There are forty-seven strings of different lengths and seven pedals. Change the level of the string, you can play all the tonality.


The harp is a special color instrument in the symphony orchestra and the cabaret. Every time it plays the finishing touch, it makes the audience unforgettable. The harp is also an important solo instrument. When playing solo, it can play a soft and beautiful lyrical section or a cadenza, which is very appealing.
