Harp Demonstration Videos by Sylvia Woods
Sylvia Woods has created a series of videos where she plays a variety of harps to help you compare the tone and sound of each model. There are 7 individual videos of Dusty Strings Harp models, plus a video including all 7 models in one continuous video. The video of the FH-34 harp includes 3 harps in various woods: walnut, cherry and bubinga.
There is also a video of a Fullsicle Harp by the Harpsicle Harp Company.
All of the videos were recorded on the same day, with the microphone in the same place for each harp. No video or audio settings were adjusted between videos. The height of the harp stool also did not change.
Sylvia begins each video segment by playing an arpeggio from the lowest to the highest string, and back down. She then plays Eleanor Plunkett by Turlough O'Carolan twice. The first time through, she starts the melody 1 octave above middle C. The second time through, the melody starts on middle C, showcasing more of the base end of the harps.
