I have owned an FH32 for a number of years. A couple of years ago I had an accident and among other things my lumbar vertebrae were fused with titanium rods and bone. For all intents and purposes I have a single rigid bone from S1 through L4. This has led to me abandoning the harp for a couple of years now as I can’t reach down and play it having no flexibility in my lower spine. I can force myself to try to get lower by dropping my shoulders (so much for thumbs up) but after a short while that increases my pain levels to a point I must quit not long after starting.
I have read or heard in the past of people using a wood box that raises the harp off the floor and acts as passive amplifier by increasing the effective size of the sound box. I am not really interested in amplification but I am interested in increasing the height of the harp off the floor by at least 5 inches while its being played. It would only be raised while being played and can otherwise sit on the floor.
Has anyone seen, have a picture of, have used, knows someone who makes them or even have plans for such a device? I would be very grateful as I miss playing the harp tremendously. Thank you in advance.
