Greetings, it has been a long time since I posted here, and now I’m seeking advice from people familiar with Camac and Salvi lever harps.
I had the opportunity to play a Salvi Donegal and the new Ulysse from Camac. While I appreciated everything that went into the Ulysse to make it a fabulous travel instrument, I confess I really preferred the sound and handling of the Donegal. The Ulysse seemed to have much lower tension, especially at the lower end of its range. What I haven’t tried is the Aziliz, which looks and sounds beautiful from photos and what I’ve been able to turn up on YouTube. But I don’t know anything about the actual touch of this harp. How does it compare to the Donegal? Are they similar, or is the Aziliz a lower-tension harp?
Any thoughts or observations about either harp would be most appreciated.
