Assume that the cords are about 3 ft long and you swing it at 3 revolutions  per second. 
The harp would be moving at about 56 ft/sec or 38 mph. If it strikes you, an object, or another person, grievous injury and/or damage results.  That is a potent weapon!

The acceleration acting on the water is about 33 g….. so it probably works.

Suppose that you changed the holder design and added fins so that the airstream passes through the harp? That could dry it even better.  You would get to hear all of the blow (or draw) reeds sounding at once!

Has anyone ever made a bullroarer?   https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullroarer <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bullroarer>

Please forgive this inexcusably trivial use of Harp-l bandwidth.
