    Hi all,

    I was just curious as to what tone you would prefer concerning your ideal harp.

    Bright but with a nice rounded sound. Not brittle or harsh.

    Hi Briggs!

    Shoot, then you have the best of both worlds, and don’t have to compromise!

    Hi Tony,

    I can understand the appeal of a bright tone, having had a Salzedo.

    One reason

    I like both, and have it with my harp. The warmth had to develop with age. If you buy a harp that starts out warm, where does it go? Does it get so dark it doesn’t carry? A bright harp is likely to warm up with time. Still, the last time I tried new harps, the warm 100 Grand got me.

    <<Another reason is that I sometimes play with other musicians and a
    brighter tone cuts through a contemporary combo better than a mellower
    tone.>>

    So true!

    Hi Saul!

    I wonder how my harp will age with time.
