The Autoharp Collection

Welcome to Bozo's autoharp collection web page... if this is not where you intended to go, you still have time to get out now...

As you can see, this is a "work in progress" page so I hope you'll forgive the mess and stick around a while, looking at the autoharps in my personal collection.

Autoharp Collection

Back in 2004, during my bout with eosinophylic pneumonosis (a rare form of pheumonia for which they know no specific cause) and its subsequent treatment with prednisone, I was, well, let's just say a little (or more) "distracted/disturbed/distraught" - or just plain crazy. I think it had something to do with realizing my own mortality and thinking I could offset it by having things that required my attention to them. Somehow, the focus got placed on autoharps. I acquired quite a few, some of which are in mint condition and others that require more than a little "fixing up". But this was going to be one of my activities in retirement so I figured I would have a lot of time to devote to this. I'm not sure I'll ever have enough time for all of these...
