Carol plays a CUSTOM MADE HARP. Her harp tone is characterized as WARM, RICH, FULL SOUND. CAROL'S BEAUTIFUL HARP LOOKS LIKE AN ANTIQUE with tasteful gold leaves and vines painted on the soundboard.
Most brides do not realize that AN UN-AMPLIFIED HARP IS HARD TO HEAR! Most harpists only play acoustically or run an amp without proper knowledge of EQ resulting in a thin, brittle sound. CAROL PLAYS THROUGH AN AMPLIFIER and has many years of knowledge and experience running sound, thus creating a warm, beautiful, clear harp tone.
Thank You for considering Harpist Carol Tatum for your wedding or special event!
