homemade lap harp

another binaural recording of mine, this time I'm recording a homemade lap harp.tuned to the key of C major it covers 2 octave using acoustic guitar strings. you'll hear one or two of the strings rattling, since this recording I've modified the bridge design and the problem is gone.

about the sound--it should very crisp you should hear the large pick clacking against the strings, and the strings should ring for some time.The recorder was very close so you wont hear much of the room.It should not be played loud because the lap harp isnt very loud.and yes that is a cricket chirping in the background you can hear it at 1:07.
