Re: [Harp-L] Cross Harp

Well, respectfully, I assert that advertisement I had read at the time of
purchase stated the contrary, that is, that the harp was named in the key of
its "cross harp", or "2nd position" key. I can't tell you who made up the
advertising, since it was years ago, but that was the case. I bought it at a
"Sam Goody" store in Westminster, California, and the advertising brochure
seemed to have been provided by Hohner.

Which then leads one to pose the next logical question,,

If it is not in the "cross harp key", then what would have been the purpose
be of naming it such?


p.s.,,where are MY three free Sp20's??,,hehe,,
