    Can you give me an opinion on these lever harps, comparing the two
    very similar instruments and comment on value. I have a teenage pupil
    who needs a better instrument than her 31 string hire harp but I
    cannot entirely justify to her parents the outlay on a pedal harp.
    She’s never shown the commitment and ability I’d like to see, which
    might well surface with a pedal instrument but I’m not wholly
    confident of that. I know she is restricted by her current instrument
    but had never really cracked the key signatures and the lever system
    before she came to me & that remains a sticking point for her. So
    whilst pedals might be more logical, I think she lacks the playing
    agility to master the pedal changes and there is more fundamental
    work to do – that’s my assessment of her. I know a pedal harp would
    give her a better opportunity and motivation, but I need an
    intermediate transition somehow…….. any suggestions, please.
    She’s 15 and probably 5 foot tall by now.. Alison

    I think that the Salvi Ana and the L&H Prelude are both good harps.
