The strings should be said in scientific notation so that we know, for instance, whether the D is a D1 or a D5, as its impossible to infer the tuning octaves from the information given. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:33, 2 December 2009 (UTC)
Needs a picture of a pedal harp. Perhaps also a diagram showing the pedals, action, etc.
- I agree, it would be great if a picture showing the pedals could be found. I'll have a hunt for one... Vl'hurg talk 19:53, 23 April 2010 (UTC)
The development history might need expanding
This might need expanding. The liner notes to CD 8.553622 Harp Concertos describe one of the featured concertos as being written for an eight pedal Harp designed by the composer Jean-Baptiste Krumpholz. The eighth pedal acted as a volume control. Graham1973 (talk) 14:49, 26 March 2009 (UTC)
Below duplicates roughly what I just wrote in the talk page for "harp", since I am talking about duplication between two articles.
I just wanted to find an article on the modern orchestral harp, so I entered the word "harp" and got to the "harp" page of course where there is a marvellous *section* "concert harp" on the modern orchestral harp, with description of how it works, diagrams, photo.
If I enter "concert harp" or "orchestral harp" in wikipedia I get taken to is page. This page duplicates to a large extent the good section in the article in "harp", and in my opinion not as good as it.
There is duplication and incompleteness. There could be a really good article on the modern orchestral harp (with the section mentioned as a starting point), but the material is distributed between "Concert harp" and "Pedal harp" articles.
The main picture at the top in both articles shows a nice medieval harp but the one next to it was only "modern" about 150 years ago. It looks like Queen Victoria used it. P0mbal (talk) 22:05, 3 April 2010 (UTC)
Use of the little finger
Harpo Marx ...unsourced claim relocated here until there is a reference
"Aside from its use in music, the harp occasionally appears in the Marx Brothers' movies when Harpo plays it. Sometimes entire scenes focus on his harp-playing."....These two sentences are unsourced and it seems like it may be a joke (as the text claims Harpo played the harp)OnBeyondZebrax • TALK 11:41, 27 May 2017 (UTC)
