Greetings! I’ve been really taken with Ralf Kleemann’s videos of the Cromos by Rainier Thurau, and I wondered if anyone has had any hands-on experience with this instrument.
There seems to be very little information in English about the Cromos; I’m not even entirely sure of the asking price (6500 euros…?) or what shipping costs might be like to the U.S.
I’d be delighted to hear anyone’s impressions of this harp. I’m very curious about what is being described as ‘Erard’ tension on the gut strings.
