1.- Concert harp: Also known as 'Pedal Harp' is a large and technically modern harp, designed primarily for classical music and played either solo, as part of a chamber ensemble, or in an orchestra. 2.- Celtic harp: The Celtic harp is a triangular harp traditional to Brittany, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. It is known as a telenn in Breton, cláirseach in Irish, clàrsach in Scottish Gaelic and telyn in Welsh. In Ireland and Scotland, it was a wire-strung instrument requiring great skill and long practice to play, and was associated with the Gaelic ruling class. It appears on the coins and coat of arms of the Republic of Ireland. 3.- Electric harp: Electric harps are based on their acoustic originals. There are both solid-body and hollow body electro-acoustic models available. True electric harps have a solid body versus a hollow body electro-acoustic harp, which can be played either acoustically or electronically. A true electric solid-body harp cannot be played acoustically since it has no hollow soundbox, and must be amplified when played. 4.- Synth Harp: a synthesizer harp with physically-modeled strings. 5.- Hammered dulcimer: most frequently but not always trapezoidal in shape, with many strings struck by handheld "hammers". This type of instrument is found in many cultures, especially in England, in the British Isles and in the north of continental Europe. Most countries have their own name for the instrument, for instance in Thailand it is called a khim, in India it is called Santoor and many have different tuning systems. Being a struck string instrument, it is considered to be among the ancestors of the piano. 6.- Electric Hammered Dulcimer: They come in a number of different sizes, styles and types, and use a pickup to amplify the sound.
