I was wondering if anyone has any experience of Turmennan harps from Ireland?
I am looking for a 26 string harp (I cannot afford a 34 string atm) and their learner 26 model looks pretty good.
It is similar shape to a Harpsicle and also has a similar stand that can be purchased separately. It has CF strings and can be fitted with just C and F Camac levers or any combination up to full levers.
Eventually I will purchase a 34 string but would a 26 be OK for a couple of years, and could I get away with only some levers?
The other harps I’ve been looking at are the Derwent 26 and the Morwenna Rose by Hands on Harps.
Ive also looked at the Camac Odyssey, the Ravenna 26 and the Salvi Juno 27 which all look great but these are much more expensive. I think it would be more prudent to buy a more affordable harp now, which would at least mean I can keep playing (I recently hired a 34 string) whilst saving for a larger harp in the future.
Many thanks for your time.
