    I don’t see myself playing advanced pieces, will I need more strings for intermediate classical/jazz?

    Hi Deb- PLEASE go with L&H! You have waited SO long for this to happen. Why saddle yoursel with someone ekse’s problems? My harp is one of the oldest I ever saw listed and it’s WONDERFUL!

    It was a terrific buy, and my teacher, who is used to playing Erards and great big Salvis, thinks it’s the nicest small harp she ever saw.

    The previously owned harps are all vetted before they are delivered, and as Kay so correctly said, the only difference between my harp and a brand new one was that someone else had played it in for me.

    I am going to my file cabinet to get the name of the terrific sales person who helped me with my purchase. She will play “your” harp and tell you all about it before you make the commitment to buy.

    I’ll post with her name in just a minute.

    I’m sorry Kay, you know I’m a tech disaster. It was Nancy who helped me, so obviously there are two (or more) wonderful people at L&H!

    Deb, as long as you’re looking at the Atlanta Harp Center, there’s an ebony Chicago 40 that’s really lovely to play if it’s the same one I tried a while back. If you get a

    Hi Brook, I remember your Chicago 40 at harp connection, it was the first time I knew I wanted a small pedal harp.
