I remember checking out bagpipes (used). Starting around three grand. I settled on the Autoharp. After years of searching found one at a pawnshop w/ p.u. Schmidt mid-70's he was asking $100 I got it for $80 my guitar guy said it's worth $400 such a deal. I would like to get a trombone (played in highschool) but my friend/landlord would definitely throw me out.

Inherited the Autoharp from my wife's grandmother who was a concert pianist and teacher it's a fun thing to play. where I come from in Spain they have a thing called the gaita, originally made from a goatskin, smaller version of a bagpipe due to the Celtic influence in Northwestern Spain. Think I'll look for one of those

For the longest time I wanted an Autoharp because I thought the beginning of "Take A Pebble" by ELP was played on one. Then I saw a live video of Keith Emerson playing the inside of his grand piano. Whoops. That's o.k. I don't have the room or money for a grand piano.

Congrats on your new Stick, looks great! Focus on that, forget the bagpipes (at least for now) lol! Enjoy!
