L&H Chicago line — any thoughts?

    I wondered if anyone has ordered and owned a pedal harp in the Chicago line from Lyon & Healy and if you’ve been happy with your harp?

    Anne, I bought the most beautiful 85P last year from the L&H CPO section.

    If I were looking for Concertino, I’d find out if there were any 85s there and play them first. I think Kay Lister’s is an 85 Concertino, and she’s really thrilled with it.

    My little 85 had to play a wedding on a mushy rug behind numerous bride’s maids last week, and everyone in church was absolutely amazed how much sound came from it.

    You’re in a great situation because you can play new harps and the CPOs when you visit.

    Hi Anne,

    I have the 85E Concertino as Sherry said and ABSOLUTELY LOVE IT!!!!

    I had a Chicago Petite until just two weeks ago.

    I own the 85E from 1998.

    I have a Chicago Petit (40 strings) for almost a year now. Before that I have rented a Prelude. I love the size of the Chicago Petit. Although the sound of larger harps is (a bit) warmer, I prefer the “little” one I have; it is not too big and the sound is wonderful. I know that I cannot play all the music because I don’t have 47 strings on my harp, but my teacher told me we can change that particular sheet music

    Dear Sherry,

    Thank you for taking the time to respond.

    Dear Kay,

    I’ve heard mixed reviews as well, so I had hoped to hear what the harp community had to say about the Chicago harp models.

    I don’t know if you’ve been to L&H before, but
