Pre-1978 Appalachian 21

APPAL21

Refurbished

This model is a favorite because the sound is bolder and more mellow than most models and is rarely disappointing. We carry only the 1975-1977 vintage, those originally 21 chord and with rounded edges, all with spruce veneer tops and modern bracing.

Pictured is an example of this model, which we try to keep in stock as a favored vintage model. The chord cover is the red/orange Autoharps Works exclusive color provided specifically to complement these classic red/orange sunburst finish models. (Cover mentioned - NO LONGER AVAILABLE. COVER WILL BE BLACK, AND PICTURE WILL BE UPDATED.)

This instrument chord layout can be customized to order. Note that the tuning is special for "folk" keys, moving the autoharp's primary key range from F, C, G, D to C, G, D, A. There is only a minor adjustment in the bass. The tuning is referred to as "Drew Smith system", running from the bottom note, GCDEFF#GG# instead of FGCDEFF#G. That enables the E chord for a less anemic key of A. The key of F is impacted. The F chord is still okay, but the Bb is weak. That strength is traded for a better key of A.

The picture is only an example. Actual instruments available are usually stripped of strings, cleaned, and waiting for refurbishing to order.
