Okay harpists,

I know you can play the entire range of the orchestral pedal harp with the left hand, and I also know the range for the right hand is more limited to higher notes because the hand is wrapped around the instrument. But, I haven't found any specific answers. Would any harpist please tell me in detail how low an average player can reach with their right hand?

Wow, that's a great question. When I was in orchestration class in college we were taught the right hand could go down to the G (bottom line bass clef). But I wonder. . .
