A gentle-sounding instrument, this high quality Pentatonic Harp (also known as a Kinder Harp or Pentatonic Lyre) is made of solid cherry, a beautiful light-reddish-brown hardwood, and durable.
This harp is tuned in the same 5-note scale (DEGABdegab) as traditional 7-string pentatonic harps, but because this instrument has 10 strings, it provides a wider range of octaves and a greater variety of melodies that can be played. It can also be tuned in the diatonic scale (CDEFGABcde), giving it more versatility.
A Kinder Harp is an ideal instrument for accompanying stories and singing, with every note in harmony, and are commonly used in Waldorf schools.
Each Kinder Harp package includes:
- Solid cherry Pentatonic Harp
- Tuning wrench
- Instructions on how to tune and care for the instrument
- Thickly padded case*
Finished with a child-safe semigloss lacquer. The instrument can be cleaned with a soft cloth. (Do not apply wax, which could cause the finish to become cloudy.)
