History and origin of the Moraharpa instrument.

Moraharpa is the predecessor of the Nyckelharpa instrument - nyckelharpa is a bit more complex and also contains resonant strings (our Moraharpa model also has resonant strings, but overall our Moraharpa is a bit simpler than Nyckelharpa).

Moraharpa usually has one melodic strings and two drone strings without resonant strings.

Aura Moraharp

Aura Moraharpa has two melodic strings tuned in tones G, D and one drone string tuned in D + 8 resonant strings.

The Moraharpe is played with the help of a mechanism equipped with 13 flaps - the lower string is controlled by all 13 flaps and the upper string by 7 flaps. With the help of flaps, a more accurate play is ensured - because it always presses the string in the same place.
