Hello fellow harpers! I am considering purchasing a travel friendly lever harp, as I would like to be more mobile with my playing. I currently have a Merlin by Rubarth, which I love the deep sound of, but it’s just too big for me to tote about with (22 pounds & 4.5 feet in height). I love to hike and would adore playing harp out in the woods for all the good folk ;). I even dreamed last night I traded in my Merlin for a travel harp!
After researching, the Eve 22 by Stoney End looks to be a wonderful choice. Stoney End has a rent to own program for this already affordable harp, so this grad student can afford it! I love the look and deeper sound of the Eve. I am wondering if anyone has experience with the Eve 22 and could share their insight with me. If there are any other smaller harps that are wonderful, I’d also love to hear about those! Thank you.
