The Metal Harp is a copper tube with triangular iron plates of different sizes soldered in a circle around it. It is played with a bow, spun around in the lap, or scraped or struck percussively. It can also be played as a flute or a trumpet.

Listen to the Metal Harp in Real Audio.

Listen to the Metal Harp Suite, a composition made only from sounds of the Metal Harp.
