Esperetto (Fey Harp, Spirit Harp or the Hazel Harp) – Though the Esperetto is a part of musical traditions throughout the Elven diaspora, the Chanters of the Otheros are widely considered to be the greatest masters of this complex instrument.

Among humans it is often called the Fey Harp, Spirit Harp or the Hazel Harp. (after the legendary Hazel of Ewrood, credited with introducing the instrument to human musicians around 1650.) Despite it’s name, the Esperetto is a fretted instrument with 13 strings, typically made of one of several species of elven tonewoods with a perforated metal top plate. Though not necessarily enchanted, players with arcane gifts can focus their energy into the instrument while playing, producing complex harmonies, echoes, and other effects impossible for the common musician

Bard of Otheros – The Bards of Otheros are known to take Esperetto playing even further, weaving music and illusion into wondrous, beautiful performances. To those without such gifts, it is a difficult, if versatile, instrument with a lovely, rich tone. Nevertheless, there are a few human cultures who have adopted various versions of the Esperetto into their own musical traditions.
