Salvi created the electro-acoustic Egan lever harp to give more power to the sound without compromising the acoustic nature of the instrument. The 38 piezoelectric pick-ups capture the individual vibrations of the strings: the amplification is finely balanced so as to complete the entire range of harmonics. The two monophonic outputs – one for mid-high frequencies, the other for mid-low frequencies – guarantee a perfect stereophonic effect.
