Sound bloody AWFUL

I am talking about the harp in particular since that is a staple backing instrument, but also the horn and pibgorn.

My main gripe is with the harp, so tired of being restricted to the lower half of the top octave, because the high notes have that awful, awful "plink" noise to them - Its frustrating having to completely bin a song you transcribed, or use the harsher sounding lute because when it's played on the harp in LoTRo, the darned "plinking" is going to ruin your song.

But high notes on the horn and pibgorn also suck, and need some desperate attention.

PS; If there's a solution to the "plink" and you know it.. pls enlighten me.
