    No one has answered, so maybe my answer will be better than none?

    Hi Andy

    Many thanks for the reply – I am leaning towards the Camac Harps, for as you said, Camac is based in France and issue of having a harp regulated and – hopefully not – the possibility of repairs in the middle of rural France!

    The models that I will likely consider are the Athena (extended), the Vendome (can’t find any opinions/experiences about this harp) and the Atlantide Prestige – if I can afford and justify the cost at the time!

    It might be a trip to Wales to try them out or a trip to Camac in Paris – I live in Bournemouth, so the ferries are fairly convenient for trips to France 🙂

    Many Thanks again

    I know that Camac in France has a pre-owned set-up, so you’d want to give that a look.

    I am a former woodwind player, and I always preferred new, but in strings, I really prefer pre-used.

    I bought a wonderful little pre-used harp from Lyon and Healy that has been the perfect instrument since I got it, so if I were looking again, I’d be looking at pre-used first.

    You might want to consider the Edinburgh Harp Festival – most of the UK harp brands in one place for comparison.

    The main pro for 2nd hand harps is more harp for your money.
