Hi everybody! I am a new
Try Clive Morley Harps in England (Gloucester) they have the Ravenna 26, and quite a few other types of harps (www.morleyharps.co.uk/acatalog) and there’s also a sound sample of it on YouTube.com…just type in Ravenna 26.
Good luck to you….
I can’t tell you about EMS, but I suspect they are not good just from looking at them over and over on Ebay for next to nothing in price — like the “Rosewood” harps.
Check out Pilgrim harps in the UK, and also Mark Norris harps. Camac is in France, and there is a brand in Germany called Horngacher whom I have heard good things about. You can find all of these on the web.
Here’s a link to the Ravenna 26 video from Morley:
I can tell you that I’ve had my Ravenna for just about 2 years now, and have never once regretted the purchase.
It is true that Early Music Shop’s line of harps are listed on the Mid-East Web site, and their frames are of rosewood, a dead giveaway. My impression was that they are positioned as a sort of “upscale Mid-East”, for people who want a spruce soundboard, a compact round backed soundbox, and levers that work (whatever “full cam levers” really means.
