Thanks to all that have replied. This is a great group! When I did the 
recording I used an Audio Technica 4050 mic and it's placement in 
proximity to the harp (about 18 " from the sound box) was the same 
placement I used for the classical guitar. The guitar sounded beautiful. 
I think the problem with the harp, a 36 string Thromahlen, is playing 
technique as the buzzes happen every performance. Harp's, or at least 
this one, are a challenge to record. Now I'm going to try my hand at 
spectral editing.....

Thanks, Brad.
