I’ve already looked through a few topics on buying older harps and topics on this type of harp, but ‘d still like some extra advice, because it’s such a big amount of money…
Tomorrow I’ll have the opportunity to look at and try a 12 year old Salvi Ana, on sale for about €2700. It’s supposedly in a very good condition. The bass strings have never been changed, in contrast to the other strings, they’ve been replaced at least once.
I would use it for practise and the occasional ‘performance’ in church – it’s definitely not going to perform on a regular basis – I’m just a humble amateur.
