Get ready to rock out to the most hardcore harp ever played!

The harp is known for creating light, calming melodies that are often associated with classical music by the likes of Beethoven or Bach. But thanks to an electronic device called a distortion pedal, it can sound completely unrecognizable.

Don’t underestimate this tiny gadget – it packs quite a powerful punch! They are made to distort instruments and give them a heavier tone, so Emily Hopkins hunted down the “heaviest” one she could find to make her harp sound as intense as possible. The result? A harp that would be a perfect addition to a metal band.

Watch her jaw-dropping performance in the video below, and don’t forget to share this story.
