I’m an A level music student who has always wanted to play the harp. The only reason I put it off was because it is so hard to find harps around where I live (My parents are not musicians either so they can’t tell the difference between a lyre and a harp 🙂 as well as it seemed to be an instrument that wasn’t very versatile.
As I’ve grown older and started on different instruments my desire to learn the harp keeps increasing. However, as you all know harps are not cheap.
So to get to the point I’ve found two harps that I like I’m just a bit uncertain.
The first one is the Fireside Cardboard Harp Kit, it costs $139.99 (with added shipping for me) and has a really nice sound, plus I can afford to add levers on later on. However there doesn’t seem to be much info on cardboard harps out there so I can’t really tell if there good or not.
The second one is the Harpsicle, Costing more at $399.99 but it does have a lovely tone. As well as a reliable brand. Biggest downside is the lack of being able to place levers on afterwards. I did look at the Sharpsticle ext but thats starting to go over my range at $560.99
So I ask for your knowledge and wisdom in this matter 🙂
