Lady with Harp: Eliza Ridgely, depicts a Regency-era single-action pedal harp (Thomas Sully, 1818)

In approximately 1720, a less cumbersome way to get some chromatic notes from a single-strung harp tuned diatonically was introduced. Five pedals (eventually seven) were housed in the bottom of the soundbox.
