That definately sounds like it will lessen the lifespan of a wood bodied harp. I would just get a plastic bodied one if you like the charachteristics better. The strangest technique I have to loosten up the action of a brand new harp is to spray the reeds with WD40. Wipw off any excess that gets on the outside of the harp. True, you will have one heck of a funny taste at first, but it wears off, and the reeds break in really nice.
