    Teva, I’m not clear on whether you found an instrument yet, but your budget figure will buy any lever harp Dwight Blevins makes.

    Thanks William. I will check them out again. I believe hat they don’t make many staved or semi staved models however.

    Teva you may find after playing a bunch of harps that it won’t matter to you whether a harp is staved or a flat back. You just have to get the opportunity to play lots of harps. Please keep searching for them….!

    believe me ,I will. I never thought it would be this complicated. the truth is, I am not so picky. I am certain there are many great harps out there that i would absolutely love. but i do think i need to try a few out first, since I will be shelling out years of savings!!!!!

    I played a Thormahlen Swan model with reinforced soundboard and strung with pedal harp strings.

    Excellent choice. I have a Camac electroharp that I love. I am a big fan of Camac in general.

    its funny how I ended up purchasing a harp I had never even considered buying- the camac concert melusine sounds so crystalline that whenever I play it, I feel tranported to another dimension. Just goes to show how important it is to actually try out
