I got this for my son for Christmas. Initially I was very nervous about tuning it, since I'm not musical, but it's pretty easy. If you can sing "Do Re Me" from the Sound of Music, you can tune this. Those are exactly the notes on this instrument. Also, it's pretty much only that the strings may need to be slightly tightened on occasion--but my son has had many vigorous playing sessions on the harp, and it has stayed in tune amazingly well. This has given us a lot of joy. I do recommend the extra music sets, which make it easy to play music even if you can't read a note (like me). The harp sounds beautiful, by the way, and my son feels so proud playing music.

This is a very fun instrument. I was quickly playing songs and my six-year-old daughter easily learned how to use the notation sheets. I bought the case and extra music sheets for the variety, though they do not all truly align with the strings. Tuning took quite a while because the supplied tuning tool had too much chrome applied that made the opening too small and therefore it did not fit every tuning peg. I tried sockets, but they did not fit "snuggly" and my mini crescent wrench was too wide to be used since it touched other tuning pegs. I wish I had another four sided tuning tool. I had to push down hard on the tool so it would not slip and that made the time it took to tune much longer as subtle adjustments were lost.
