Electric fan

Various kinds of electric hand fans can be used on the harp. Instead of a fan, hand held milk foamers can also be used. 

Production

The fan is held to the strings of the harp. The blade of the fan hits the strings repeatedly, creating a long sustained note. The blades of the fan must be made from soft plastic so that they don't damage the strings of the harp. If a milk foamer is used, a strip of tape is attached to the foaming circle. The tape functions as the blade of the fan.
