Lately I’ve been really excited about the possibility of getting a cross-strung or triple strung harp. The full chromatic potential of these harps is so appealing, especially since the first instrument I ever learned was piano, and they seem so similar.
Anyway, I’m just wondering which would be better. I was looking at the cross-strung Stoney End Esabelle, which seemed quite affordable, but the range is only three octaves. Musically, do you think this would be too constricting, when the whole point of getting a cross strung would be musical freedom?
