Fly to the Music / Electric harp

Fly to the Music
Fly to the Music

The Harp is one of the oldest musical instruments and has remained popular so far.
But it has very large size with 180cm height, over 50kg weight and people think of it as too expensive.
So I wanted to improve its image by reducing the inconvenient oversized form.
This proposal can be folded in half, which is very helpful when carrying it.
In respect of its appearance, I tried to avoid excessive decoration and simplify the shape.
For greater enjoyment of playing, I have added useful functions such as recording, arrangement and equalizer.
