I have a Camac 30 string electroharp.

I have played on a Silhouette and I have held Deborah’s Blue Light and heard it played.

In terms of “better”, they are all good. The Silhouette sounds different from the Camac harps, and the camac harps all have a similar sound to one another. So if you want to go with the Camac vs the L&H is a matter of preference for the tone.

The Silhouette is lighter then my harp, which I personally find too heavy to strap on even at only 30 strings, although Deborah didn’t seem to have much problem when she was using the same harp.

It would have been nice to have the extra strings, and if I knew then what I know now I would have gone for them. But honestly, if the only option was the 30 strings then I would have gotten the same harp I picked.

Now I would choose the Blue Light. It sounds just as good, and is so much lighter that it is no contest to me. If they made a larger version that would be perfection in my mind.

I would still probably go for the Blue Light now even without the extra strings. The weight is more of an issue for me than the lack of strings. A little creative arranging and almost anything that can be played on the 36 string can be reworked to be playable on the BL.
