    It would help if you were more specific about the damage. Was it damage to the finish, or to the wood? Were they dropped or are they scarred? The different makers use different finishes, and that makes a difference in how the harp reacts to a dropped tuning key or pencil.

    My word!!!!! Such an overreaction from some of you!!! Who is involved in name calling or bashing???? All I said was that saying Salvis were fragile was not true. Why is this bashing? Why is this name calling? Some of you tend to really freak out at the least disagreement with what you say!! Settle DOWN…..

    All you were saying? Re-read your own posts.

    > and I have heard from more than one person that your information on Venus is skewed and that you have been lucky… experience. I know I wouldn’t deal with them after things I have read here from Denise.

    > It doesn’t bother you that there was false information given on an entire BRAND of harps (Salvi), huh John? Only that Venus was mentioned, I gather. Oh my………..I can almost hear the choirs of angels!!

    Yes, I was quoting facts…..FACTS. I didn’t call anyone names….my goodness… many “sudden appearances” here now!!

    It has been my experience here on the HC that there are a great many people who have joined but only lurk.

    David’s got it right.

    The Camac Go Go cart should work on a covered harp if the cover has a slot hole where the hook goes into the harp. I don’t think it would work to attach the cart to the harp and then try to put the cover on. Never seen a red one before. Kind of looks nice.

    I think Camac’s website still needs work.

    I agree with you.

    It’d be nice to see prices on their website too.

    I for one would love to see, hear, and play Davids Venus harps. I’ve played on various models and I say use the right tool for the job. The one nice thing I like about Venus is how they will go out of their way to custom make a harp especially for you. Its that personal touch that makes all the difference in the world I think.

    David, could you please explain about the new HT Venus harps? Specifically, how are they different from other Venus harps?

    David Ice on #111456

    Hi Catherine!

    I’m certainly not privy to all the technical details, but my understanding is that they use carbon fiber in the shell body for strength and lighter weight, which in turn produces a bigger sound.

    The Venus HP harp sounds really intriguing.
