Re: [Harp-L] harmonetta - more questions

Harponline sell a tutorial book for the Harmonetta for 8.95 euros, which would answer that question i imagine, trying to find an actual Harmonetta might be a bit more difficult though.

Good info and leads - thanks.

More questions:

Does anyone know where I can find out how it is laid out? What notes are available in which holes, bow & draw? What effect does each button actually have? Etc.

I don't think I've seen an actual harmonetta (except maybe in a store window 35-40 yrs ago) and I sure don't know anybody who plays one. It looks like it would take a lot of wind but it also looks like it is 'truly' chromatic in both chords and melody. (?)

Anybody here play one or own one?
