Hi there! I’ve been playing a 26-string harp for almost three years and I feel so creatively ready to expand my range.
I’ve been looking at the Camac Melusine, but I have no way to play it and try it out. I’ve been able to try the Dusty Strings, and loveee the tone, but I feel like it’s kind of unwieldy for me, as I’m 5’1″. (Not to mention much more expensive… But it’s kind of easy to find them used, as I live in Oregon, one state away from their headquarters.) The Camac has two more bass strings than the Dusty, but it has a rounded back so it may be easier for my arms to reach around. I also love the shape more than I like the Dusty’s shape- it’s more feminine. I’m just wondering if anyone has experience comparing these harps, and could give me some advice! Thanks so much!
