I started harp lessons about 6 months ago, and I’m currently renting a 31 string Blevins lever harp from my teacher. However, this fall I’m moving off to college, and since there’s no harp program there, I’m thinking about getting a small harp to take with me to keep practicing. Since I’ll have really limited storage space and I don’t want to spend a huge amount of money, the Fireside Cardboard harp kit looks like a possibility. (here’s a link to it)
I was wondering if anyone had any experience with this harp (and also building it)? Would I be better off spending more on a small wooden harp like a Harpsicle or a Mid-East harp? (I realize that all of these harps are not the best quality, but I don’t exactly want to bring a super fancy harp into the dorm with me.)
Thanks so much!
