Got a used OS15 15-chord Oscar Schmidt last night, bought cheap at auction. The thing looks fine, but most of the felts and springs are shot. My old Type A, which is probably 80 years older, has better felt and springs - go figure. I'm going to have to take a pause from autoharp tweaking and research to catch up on some other projects, but this is as good a candidate for refelting diatonic as any I've owned so far.
Here are the articles I've been working on. https://creekdontrise.com/acoustic/auto ... unings.htmhttps://creekdontrise.com/acoustic/auto ... toharp.htm
- Making your Autoharp "Folk-Friendly"https://creekdontrise.com/acoustic/auto ... toharp.htm
- What is a Diatonic Autoharp?
I started to write ONE article to answer some reader questions, and went down three different "rabbit holes." I also picked up four autoharps I didn't really need because I wanted to do the projects I was reporting on myself. But time to spend on those projects has run out, so I won't be getting back to them for a while.
