I only had it for a few days, Stuart, and can't remember now what pitch it was at. Yes, every now and then I heard guittar music. Same relative tuning, of course.

Very pretty and the instrument does sound harp-like. Is it tuned in Eb but written in C? The last piece reminds me a bit of Oswald's bell piece in his 'Pereyra Da Costa' publication

Bass to treble: G, CDEFGA Bcegc' - aso, a low G followed by a C Major scale and a C Major arpeggio. There are metal oval rings for three of the bass notes to shift them by a semitone.

It sounds incredibly sweet... how is it tuned?

I received this instrument on loan yesterday, together with a tutor edition. Both instrument and edition are by Edward Light. I'm enjoying exploring it...
