Chromatic Autoharp and Hurdy-Gurdy Dulcimer built into kitchen cabinet. The Autoharp is a traditional instrument, playable in 21 chords. This particular autoharp was built on a larger scale with lighter gauge strings and a massive resonating chamber to increase volume and quality of sound. Also, an invention of Harmon’s, the Hurdy-Gurdy Dulcimer was added to the same resonating chamber. The Hurdy-Gurdy dulcimer is a circularly bowed instrument with a crank and wheel that act as a constantly rotating violin bow.To play the Autoharp: with the left hand, depress and hold down a Chord Bar (on the left, metal buttons), this mutes all the strings except for those in the chord represented, and the right hand is used to strum or pick a melody.
