Tired of searching lever harp.
Not interested lever harp in the market.
So I ask several harp maker about my requirement.
I want Fiemme spruce for sound board.
European maple for soundbox.
And oil based violin varnish.
I said I will buy wood and find other varnish expert.
Try to relieve harp maker burden.
But they all refused my request.
They mean all the lever harps, compare to violin or classical guitar, lute…. Are low quality, ugly finish.
They ask for over $ 6k for their custom made harp.
I know how much for the material, how many hour to complete.
I feel they ask too much!
I resist to buy expensive pedal harp, but when I see the quality wood they use, craftsmanship, beautiful finish, and long time work.
I feel it is worth to spend extra!
What do you think?
