Experience with David harps?

    Currently we are looking around a bit for a pedal harp for our son. Quite close there is a David 47 strings pedal harp for sale. I have been looking on the internet but can find almost no information or experiences with these harps.

    Are there people here playing these harps or people who do have experience?

    Thanks!

    I have had no personal experience playing these harps.

    But here is a link to David Harps website which may be a little helpful!

    Thanks! I had found that site already, but I would like to know if people also played them. There is little to none info about experiences with these harps on the internet.

    I would contact David harps and ask if there are any harp owners near you to try the harp and learn more. I would certainly look at the harp that is for sale. You may also want to post your question on Facebook Harp Exchange and also Harpists Around the World.

    I have played David harps briefly at an exhibition and was impressed: liked the tone, responsive instruments.

    Congratulations! It looks beautiful. Like Tayce I tried them at an exhibition and found them to have a really lovely sound.

    The waiting must be terrible for Davy! When we found our beautiful grand piano many years ago, it took two weeks before they could deliver it to us, and I was a “basket case,” ha, ha! So, we completely understand having to wait. Best of luck to you all and we know that the harp and Davy will make BEAUTIFUL music soon!
    Harp Hugs,

    Here is a first quick video made with my phone of the sound of the harp. Davy is so happy with it!

    Thanks for posting this! The harp sounds real nice through my headphones–bright, but very deep, like my favorite Camac, the Atlantide Prestige. Davy will very soon be used to changing pedals; it will just become “second nature” to him! His technique is also coming along very well. Best of luck to Davy and all of you in your endeavors!
