Well said David! I have the respect really for all harp makers. I just believe that their are some duds that come out every once in awhile. I’m sure we all have atleast experienced that. Taking a combative tone over which brand is better is childsplay. However, it’s still lovely to hear everyones harp stories.
My Salvi happens to not be a dud, but I chose it over the Lyon & healy. I thought I liked the sound a bit better. Again, personal taste to suit my fancy! ( and i still have the utmost respect for L&H and all other brands! Goodwork on making us harpists happy in many ways!)
