Hello! I’m not a harp player, but I hope to be one. I’m currently looking at harps, and am probably going to visit the House of Musical Traditions in MD this weekend to look at their stock, and I’m hoping to see Heartland Harps next week.
I have a spinning wheel that at 15 pounds is a pain to lug around because of its shape, especially to put in the back seat of my 2 door car. I would also like to be able to take it with me in my car when I travel without too much of a pain in the neck.
What is the smallest harp that’s reasonable to learn on? I like the look, size wise of the Heartland Serenity at 25 strings – it does go down to the C below middle C. It also looks like a size that I can manage and use, even if later I decide that I need a larger harp that I won’t be able to take out and about.
Does anyone have the Serenity or another Heartland Harp that they can comment on, or any advise in general?
