Oscar Schmidt OS120CNE Autoharp

What's in a name? Quality, history, and tradition. Our Autoharp is the original, with over 100 years of history behind it. A wide variety to choose from. Oscar Schmidt is truly the original and only complete source for the Autoharp. Premium woods, quality hardware, and modest prices create an ideal instrument. Each is inspected and adjusted in the USA by a skilled technician, your assurance for smooth fret ends, precision low action and resonant sound quality. Unequaled standards, easy playing comfort, and tone response create the perfect value.

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.

What is the Fine Tuning System?

The fine tuning system does not replace the larger tuners at the top of the autoharp. The fine tuning system is a second set of tuners positioned on the bridge of the autoharp. The fine tuning system is used to make minute adjustments in the pitch of the strings. Once you have the string tuned to the right note, you can use the fine tuning system to get the note exactly in tune. This autoharp model comes with the fine tuning system pre-installed. To obtain your desired sound, just use the included Allen wrench and make any smaller tuning adjustments as needed.

“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.
