My harps at the moment - mostly Special 20's with Turbolids. The big ones are Hohner Echo Celeste's and a Suzuki humming tremolo harp - what a great sounding instrument, I wish I had more of 'em. Also wish they made Turbolids for 'em. Great for straight and third position, not so hot for bending.

These are mainly played racked, unplugged, accompanying the Nationals and ol' leatherlungs.

Very nice Lummo! Perfect busker eye candy too. I'm guessin' they've hooked a bystander or two mebbe.
It's funny: I don't use my only tremolo.. mebbe 'cuz I've got the keyboard in front of me for summa that accent stuff.

I'm liking the tremolo harps more lately.

had a couple of tremolos in the 80s and they were an interesting switch. at the time though i was pretty well stuck in 2nd position, and the trems just don't draw and bend all that well.
