How the harp works

A normal harp is based on a triangle,

The strings pass through the sound board which is on the sound box.

The tuning pins on the neck hold the tension of the strings over the bridge pins.

The pillar holds one end of the neck against the tension of the strings and the collar is next to the sound box.

The intensity and the quality of the sound of the harp depends on the strings, the sound board and the sound box.
