Handcrafted by the master
Chong Moua Lee of Laos, these double-tongued brass Hmong
Harps are delicate in appearance, but strong in ethereal
These are powerful instruments and may have volume which
rivals all but very loud steel harps. The sustain is
long and true with air flow being extremely effective.
Smaller than their bamboo cousins, a firm clamping of
the frame is still essential. Some practice at supplying
the necessary thumb and finger pressure will be needed.
The flat side faces the audience and it is recommended
that they be plucked toward the player only. Back and
forth plucking may damage these somewhat fragile instruments.
