A few people have asked about drawings and dimensions for my Moraharpa. I worked from various sources online but drew my own, and worked out what I would need for a keybox similar to a kontrabas keybox; I did not want the “authentic” original and rather limited keybox.

The body is finished now, but I am still finishing fitting the keys in the keybox!

Here’s a photo which will have to do:

I have been waiting for a suitable occasion in nice weather to record this for a month or two. The tune has been on my list of those to learn properly for a while, and I think “Pigopolskan” is a great tune.

Recording near some running water seemed like quite a good idea, and I think it was. I must get a wind shield for the recorder though, there are one or two blowy moments. In fact I used this first proper take rather than the second as that one began with a loud buzzing insect on the microphone!
