Hi fellow harpists!
I have Dusty Strings Ravenna lever harp. I’m quite happy with the overall sound, except there’s a noticeable difference of tone when I engage the Loveland levers. It’s something which has been bugging me for quite a while now. The sound becomes duller and not quite as bright and in certain keys it doesn’t really sing very well.
A friend of mine has recently bought Teifi Eos harp and I have to say the semitone levers are far superior – they preserve the string tone and don’t displace it out of position (I think the design is based on that of a concert harp). The harp itself also sounds just wonderful. So I have been considering changing the semitones on my Ravenna to the Teifi semitones which are available on their site
I was wondering if anyone has any experience either with Teifi semitones and/or with changing semitones on a Ravenna – is it even possible/practical?
