like all fully levered harps, an initial retuning is required to make specific keys easily accessible. This is explained below. Tuning your Fullsicle™ harp to play with flats: Keys of F, B flat, E flat tuning to the key of F major. (using B flats) 1. Raise all your B levers. 2. Tune your harp as usual tuning the B’s to a natural as usual. 3. Leave the B levers up for all keys except when you need B flats. Then for F major (B flats) lower the B levers and it will lower your B’s 1/2 step to the flat. 4. If you want to play a song with 2 flats key of B flat major (B flat and E flat), use this same procedure and include all E’s. Then the B flats and E flats will remain up, as naturals, unless you need them as flats. 5. If you want to tune for the key of E flat major (B flat, E flat and A flat), use the same procedure and add the A’s. Many harpists leave their harps tuned to E flat (with the B’s, E’s and A’s up). Then they are able to play in up to 4 sharps and up to 3 flats without retuning their harp. All Harpsicle® Harps come with a tuning wrench, strap buttons, and a two year warranty.
