Hmong Harp

Handcrafted by the master Chong Moua Lee of Laos, these double-tongued brass Hmong Harps are delicate in appearance, but strong in ethereal qualities.

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.
