I have a Troubadour III which originally had levers made of some composite metal which tended to break. There are no matching replacements available, and they weren’t good levers to begin with. I paid my wonderful harp tech to replace them with Loveland levers (the new Camac levers hadn’t been invented then and the Loveland levers were less expensive than Lyon & Healy performance levers). The harp has a good sound and was worth the investment for parts and labor. When you change lever type, the new lever position is often different, and of course the harp will need a regulation. But if you love the harp, changing the levers is less expensive than buying another harp.
