    I hope I can buy one one day. The straightboard Lyon & Healy is gorgeous.

    Yes, it is lovely isn’t it. I played one of Carls restored harps at Camden and it was immaculate – one with a bust of Wagner on the column! (but I didn’t hold that against it!). I had a sweet tone and the workmanship was impeccible.

    Rosemary- A couple of times over the 20 or so years that I rented instruments to Camden I was short and had to rent my ‘good’ harp. The one I keep for myself. That’s the one you played. It was built in 1899 and I restored it 20 years ago. It’s still a wonderful instrument. And no everybody, it’s NOT for sale!

    Carl,

    Any chance you can post a picture of that one? I would love to see it.

    Oh dear, I really thrashed it….played ffffff all the time and really crunched the “gears” over and over…I’m sure I shook at least 3 rivets loose playing the Ballade…and whacked the mechanism several times raising with wild abandon…..(tee hee hee, only teasing…) You should have charged me more for the rental! It was beautiful and too good to hire out to grubby harpists from the antipodes..

    If someone can explain how to put a picture up here I’ll try to do it. I’m a lower life form when it comes to computers.

    Carl,

    If I can do it, anyone can! I followed what Ken said in another thread:

    “Posted by Ken Matthews on

    Leigh,
    once you have the the pictures uploaded to you web site, then right
    click on the picture and select “copy links location” then here in the
    post reply select the “add image icon” then paste the address of you
    picture you just copied from you web site. You should see it in your
    reply message before you post the message here. If not.. Then something
    is wrong.”

    I hope this works for you!

    I’m leaving for a short regulation trip this afternoon. As soon as I get back(probably Friday) I’ll try to put up some pictures of the ‘Wagner’ harp. But I’m warning all of you, computers never work for me. I have a computer guru who gets me out of trouble and even with him sitting next to me, most proceedures don’t work! But I’ll give it a shot…

    Okay, I’ll try it — it works! Only I don’t get the “Copy Links Location” option.

    I heard there’s a Salzedo based S & M theme restaurant down where I’m going. As you eat, the waiters come over and scream “Elbows Up!!!”.
