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. Expert Opinion 

The ChromAharP is an excellent instrument that helps interested players learn a zither instrument without having to make a large investment. Often schools and religious musical groups purchase the ChromAharP for youths to learn on. As the specialist, I would recommend its use for older children and teenagers because of the affordability and built-in durability. In fact, unlike other zither models, the ChromAharP line offers cross bracing built-in the interior’s top to help prevent warping and increase the unit's overall strength.

For seasoned players, we suggest purchasing an Oscar Schmidt Autoharp because it usually offers more perks (some autoharp models have fine-tuning). But if you’re just starting or selecting a unit for children/teenagers you can’t go wrong with a ChromAharP.

“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 manufacturers 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.
