    I am contemplating on getting a Grand Harpsicle with truitt levers.

    Has anyone had experience with this harp? Any reviews?

    As your only or main harp?

    Well, it will be my 6th harp. Have two 36’s, one 29, one 26 and one 22. Different makers from Thormahlen, Blevins, Dusty Strings and Stoney End. All celtic.

    I love truitt levers, they look terrific, very solid but not big and heavy looking.

    I thought it had 33 strings.

    Jessica, you are right…my error!

    I was thinking that since the low string is the C two octaves below middle C, that it was 36 strings.

    That low C is more important (to me) than haveing the high A, B, and C, which I would not miss much.

    That’s what I have, 33 strings, and I don’t miss having extra strings at the top of the range.

    Grammy winning harpist Marta Cook has completed two European concert tours using the Grand Harpsicle exclusively. She would surely be a good source of information.
