Lots of people do this, no? Use smaller harps for travel…
I have a large, fabulous harp, 36-string Salvi Livia. I love it! However, I’m strongly considering acquiring a 26-string harp for travel and ensemble work. Why? I am planning to frequent an area with lots of hills, rock-pathways, and lots of stairs. It seems like it’s a no-brainer to get something lighter and easier to haul around.
Main question: how hard is it to adapt one’s repertoire to a smaller harp? I imagine it’s not a huge deal… what do you all think? Any experience much appreciated!
