Sorry for the annoyance ...
Sorry to bother the world with this, but I want to change the address
to which the Harp mailing list is sent to me. Would someone please email
marc@xxxxxxxxxxxxx to tell me the procedures for subscribing and
unsubscribing. I won't lose the instructions again. I promise.
Regarding soaking harps: When I experimented with soaking mine
(about 20 years ago) I found that the old Marine Bands sounded louder
for a short time, but that the wood swelled and irritated my lips.
Nowadays, I'm enamored of the Lee Oskar harps which I find to be nice
and loud and bright. I suspect that soaking may have been used by
those playing unamplified in order to get more volume out of the harp.
