    Hello, today I discovered this harps made ​​in China. I ‘m very curious to know more of them. Has anyone had a chance to try them?
    I’m from Argentina and here I’ve only tested the Lyon & Healy and Salvi.

    thank you very much

    I haven’t got the chance to try them, but I found their website: http://www.eagleharp.com/ch/Index.html the English version seems doesn’t work yet. Reading from another forum where someone talking about the harp bought from them, said the sound of the harp is quite nice, and it used the gut strings imported from the UK. I try to attach photo they posted

    The Web site is still largely empty, even in the Chinese version…that probably doesn’t bode well. But it might be worth contacting them directly if you’re still interested. If you fax in English and write very simply, that will often work.

    I don’t know if it is safe to assume there is only one pedal harp maker in China at the moment – possibly not. The Chinese harps I have tried seemed to be reasonable students instrument with OK sound. But not rivals for more expensive harps in terms of quality – for instance the edges of the action plates were not smoothed and would shred my knuckles playing the top octaves.
