I was looking into purchasing an electric harp, and I wanted to ask for advice on the different brands if anyone had a preference? I think I’ve narrowed it down to 3…
Silhouette Electric Lever Harp – Lyon and Healy (33 strings, 16 pounds/7kg)
Electro 36 – Camac (32 strings, 11.02 pounds/5kg)
DHC Blue Light – Camac (36 strings, 28.66 pounds/13kg)
I own a Lyon and Healy 85 Petite and love it dearly. I’ve never played a Camac harp but having heard others perform with them I know they have beautiful sound. So my real questions are…
Has anyone played these harps?
Do you have a preference?
Is it worth the extra weight for the extra strings on the Electro 36?
Is it worth the fewer strings and lesser weight on the DHC Blue light?
Is the Silhouette from Lyon and Healy as good as the Camac harps?
If you can answer one question or just share your opinion I’d really appreciate it, thank you for reading!
P.S. Oh and I’ve been playing harp for awhile so I’m not a beginner, this won’t be my first harp. And I’m interested in playing 60’s music, in which case I’d “rock out” on an electric so this won’t be for formal events. 🙂
P.S.S. Annnnnd I wouldn’t be buying this immediately I’m a high school student so I’d have to save up I just wanted to have a price to shoot for a goal over the next year or so to know which harp exactly I’d like to get.
P.S.S. Sorry I talk so much. Thank you if you’ve read all this, I’d really love to hear back from you!
