Technical Things

Here is a list of useful things that Vicki uses:



  • DPA  IMK-SC4061 instrument microphone kit for stage performances
  • AKG C411 contact mic for ceilidhs (to avoid feedback)
  • MPA VL Phantom power adapter (for the AKG)
  • Orchid Phantom Mic Mute Box (to mute the mic!)

Playing Things

Travel Things

  • Peli Storm iM3200 to put the 'harpa in the hold of a plane. (Don't buy the foam - get your own)


I have several different sorts of cases:

  • Bagluthiers in Spain.
  • BassBags in the UK
  • Appalachian Dulcimer bag from Hobgoblin - these are only for if you have no money or need a stopgap!! Make sure you measure your harpa before buying one of these, they're quite short. (I don't have one of these, but thought it was useful to have in the list!)
