Dusty Strings Ravenna 26

    After A LOT of thought(seriously it was about all that I could think about 24/7 for a while now), I decided to get the Ravenna 26. Although most would assume it is the cost, which is a HUGE part of it, I also happen to like the looks of it a lot better than comparable harps out there. Maybe because its a bit more modern? I’m not sure. Until I can get one of those gorgeous pedal harps that cost $$$$$ and look like the belong in a castle, I think it will suit me best.

    But anyways, to hold me over until I can get it, (I’m putting a down payment on it soon but will pay over a 3 month basis) I was hoping to here from anyone else who has it! Especially pictures! All I can seem to find are the stock photos, and I would love to see others. So if anyone can just reassure me that putting almost $1000 into such a unsure thing was the right move, that would be much appreciated! 😀 I’m terrified of having such a large payment, because I never have in my life, but I believe that it will be well worth the hard work and long wait!

    One last thing: I OFFICIALLY FOUND MY TEACHER! As a believer in Christ, I had believed that He told me she was the right one. Oddly she was the only teacher I couldn’t get a hold of! But I’m really am happy to have finally figured out who it is and talked with her! (Hello if she’s reading this! 🙂 ) Thanks to everyone for the support!

    I forgot to add, this particular Ravenna has C and F levers. It also comes with the case, which saves me close to $100! Plus the shipping is very fair compared to the $160 shipping I almost paid! I just feel that this is the harp for me. Everything kinda landed in place and I have faith that the job will too.

    Thanks for the tip Jennifer! I’ll try to get the legs! I’ll be going to the Virginia Harp Center soon, and hopefully they’ll have one so I can pick it up without the shipping! I didn’t know the stability was even a concern! I learn so much from here every day! 🙂

    Thanks Gloria! I’m so glad to hear that! I think I’ll really enjoy the portability aspect. All my friends love to bring their instruments to school to play together and its nice to know I might be able to join in sometime. I’m also over my grandmas a lot and I know it would be fun to play at Christmastime especially! 🙂
