The Differences Between The Two Types Of Harp Used By SC03.
Scottish harp player SC03 plays two different types of harp, which are different sizes. The smaller one is the traditional 'Celtic' harp. This has less strings which can restrict some of the tunes that can be played on it. The sound board is much smaller and therefore it is not as loud as the large concert harp. The Celtic harp can be more versatile though. It's size means that it can easily be moved around in small spaces. This is especially true in old venues such as castles where you might get narrow winding stair cases.
The larger of the two is the 'concert' harp, which is also known as the pedal harp. The pedals are very similar to the pedals on a piano. In fact the harp is pretty much a piano standing on it's end, but without the legs and casing. It is a little more complicated than that, but in essence, true none the less. The concert harp has many more strings and is more difficult to play than its smaller counter part. Though this is compensated for by the fact that many more tunes can be played on it, as there are a wider range of notes. The sound board is also much larger, meaning that it is capable of emitting higher volume than the Celtic harp. The larger size and more intricate design of the concert harp also means that they carry a much higher price tag which can vary from around £12,000 to over £40,000 for a new instrument.
