Autoharp OS11021 FGIE Summary

This 21 Chord AutoharpStore.com Exclusive features a basswood finish on both the front and back, and plays in eleven different keys. This autoharp can be played either acoustically or electrically by plugging it into an amp.

Note: This model no longer has a built-in equalizer.


“The exclusive line of Oscar Schmidt autoharps was designed around the autoharp player. The OS11021FGIE is designed to be reminiscent of the southern music heritage. This line of autoharps is exclusive to the AutoharpStore.com and was only produced for a short period of time.

The Oscar Schmidt OS11021FGIE features basswood on the front and back of the interment and a beautiful butterscotch rose finish. The color of this instrument was taken straight from the rose that bears its name. The OS11021FGIE features a glossy finish that will help extend the life of the instrument, the only downside is that the acoustic sound will be slightly dampened do to the thicker finish. The basswood provides a bold sound that will carry in a band of instruments. The exclusive line of Oscar Schmidt autoharps is still made the same way that has been done for years. The frame of the OS11021FGIE is constructed from rock maple and is tied into a 10 ply block of rock maple that makes up the pin block. By having a strong pin block, the main tuning pegs will be less likely to rotate thus detuning your strings. The sound hole on the OS11021FGIE is framed by maple and provides enough air space to be able to play this autoharp acoustically.

All of the exclusive autoharps for the AutoharpStore.com from Oscar Schmidt feature fine tuning. Fine tuning uses an additional set of tuning pegs located at the bottom of the instrument that are used to make small adjustments to the strings to get them to the proper pitch. Besides being able to make the small adjustments, fine tuning will also help extend the life of your main tuning pegs as well. However, you still want to do a majority of your tuning using the main tuning pegs as the fine tuning pegs will bottom out.

Currently at the Autoharpstore.com we are including 50% off a gig bag with the purchase of any Oscar Schmidt Autoharp purchase. You can also choose from a instant $30 rebate off the purchase of either a semi-hard shell case or hard shell case. In addition to 50% off a gig bag, we will include a free tuner with your purchase of a autoharp. There is also the option for a discounted digital tuner that has a built-in metronome and tone generator. We also offer $20 flat rate shipping in the continental US for any autoharp.

Oscar Schmidt OS11021FGIE Autoharp Unique Design
This AutoharpStore.com Exclusive features a gloss butterscotch rose finish often seen in southern rock artists' guitars.

Gloss Finish
The gloss finish not only provides an added layer of protection, it also affects the vibrations, creating a slightly lower sound.
Basswood Construction
Both the front and back of this autoharp are constructed of basswood which provides a bold sound that will carry in a band of instruments. The back also features the gorgeous butterscotch rose finish.
Oscar Schmidt OS11021FGIE Exclusive Autoharp
Oscar Schmidt OS11021FGIE Autoharp Fine Tuning System
The secondary tuning system consists of tuning pegs that can be adjusted with an Allen wrench at the bottom of the autoharp. This allows professionals to adjust the tension of the strings by a significant amount providing a more refined sound.
Incredible Strength
The pin blocks in many of the finest autoharps consist of hard rock maple for extra strength. The pin blocks are laminated 10 ply rock maple pin blocks meaning they are specially coated for extra strength. The purpose of the pin block is to firmly hold the tuning pins in place where the strings are attached. The added strength of the laminated rock maple ensures that everything will stay in the right place.

The Autoharp, like the piano, is a tempered scale, so the same string is used in several chords, even when perfectly in tune in one chord may sound slightly sharp or flat in another. Over time as strings loosen, use fine tuning to tighten so it can reach its limits. The first twang of a string is higher and the tone settles in after a second. Turn the tuner to 442 and attach the clip to the middle peg.

History

“An American instrument of American invention.”
The Autoharp is one of the few musical instruments that can claim to be truly American in origin.

Invented in 1881 and patented in 1882, the Autoharp has had a remarkable hundred-year history. After being proclaimed “the nation’s favorite musical instrument” and then nearly fading into obscurity, the Autoharp has taken its manufactures on an endless roller coaster of ups and downs. As a nineteenth-century parlor room favorite, it was finally replaced in popularity by the phonograph. The Autoharp did not die. It retreated to the mountains where it underwent a metamorphosis from a parlor instrument to a folk instrument. From there it came out into our schools to become a classroom feature, and finally has emerged as a popular instrument for the serious musician.
