I think I have to agree about the Erard Gothics. They are pretty nice. Much finer and smaller than modern grand concerts and after hearing one on youtube I think I like their sound better too. I’m a big fan of a bright sound which says “harp” to me. Some of the modern pedal harps sound identical to piano’s and I think what’s the point?
Carl I also agree about your Art Nouveau model. I remember seeing that online a while ago and drooling. It’s so beautiful and so different to everyone elses harps. It’s about time someone started making harps other than the classic victorian look.
