Harp Mandolin

The harp mandolin appeared in the early 1900s. This modern replica exploits the sympathetic vibrations gained with the four additional harp strings to give the mandolin sound a built-in echo chamber reverb effect. The harp strings can be plucked along with the mandolin, extending the range of the instrument. Tuned diatonically starting below the G of the mandolin they are F – E – D – C .
