The covers of the harp, make a major difference in the sound of the harp. If the covers have slots, the harp produces a brighter, or tinny sound. If the covers are closed, the harp produces a fuller sound.

Consider this comparison....Lee Oskars and Marine Bands, have covers with slots. Lee Oskar has a plastic comb, and Marine Band has a wooden comb. Both produce a similar bright sound. Not because of the comb material, but because of the slots in the covers.

There is a difference in sound between wooden and plastic combs, but neither will give you a full, rich sound with slotted cover plates.
