i own a Flatsicle harp and am very satisfied with the sound. But not with the sharping levers, because they can be heard – and the sound of the string is “muffled”. My warranty has long expired, so i will try to exchange the levers. The question is: What other levers fit on a Flatsicle harp (Loveland?), or is this harp only built in combination and for use with the Robinson levers?
Thank you. I have also been checked with the recommendation there. The problem: There is not much room for new levers, if any, would fit well only the Loveland flaps. And the second problem: You would have closed the old holes, because new levers need new holes elsewhere. Therefore, it seems to me quite difficult. Then the Robinson levers probably must stay.
@ Gloria: On my Flatsicle the levers can be heard when in use. The sound is then very dull and unattractive.
My previous harp had Robinson levers and I hated tham. My current harp has Lovelands. Though my first choice would have been Trutts, my harp came only with Lovelands. I like them surprisingly well. They are easy to use and do not change the string’s tone in the slightest. If it’s possible to change out your Robinsons for Lovelands, I highly recommend doing it.
