I’ve been researching harps for quite a while now and although I wasn’t planning on choosing one today, the perfect one just sort of found me! While browsing the Thormahlen website, I found new harps that were recently posted on their “In stock” page. And there it was… the Serenade with all the features I was planning on ordering!! I couldn’t pass it up. I’m so excited! I’m getting the taller feet put on it (since I’m 5’8″) and it should be here sometime in May! I’ve been listening to tons of sound clips of the Serenade lately and I just can’t quit listening to them–so beautiful! Especially Brook Boddie’s “Upon the Willows”. I’m gonna have to get me a copy of that music!
My only concern is that I’ve never actually played on a nylon-strung harp. (I know, I know. I’m taking a bit of a chance.) I’m renting a Troubadour now and play on my teacher’s Prelude which both have pretty high tension, so I think the slightly lighter tension of the Serenade will be a bit of a welcome relief. So, all you Serenade lovers, tell me how much I’m going to love this harp!! 😉
