Looking for input on Triplett harps. I’m not familiar with the brand.
A local music store has a 10-yr-old Sierra 34 on consignment. I tried it, along with a new Dusty Crescendo and Salvi Una. Since I’m still Mr. Fumblefingers, I asked the harp expert there to play the DS and Triplett for me and recorded them.
The Triplett sounded quite close to the DS, and the harp guy said that both the DS and Salvi were new and would change sound as they were broken in. While the DS definitely sounded nicer, I’m not sure it sounded $1,000 nicer. I want to concentrate on learning the pedal harp, so whatever Celtic model I end up with will be used for harp circles and workshops. My decision will probably come down to the Sierra or a DS Ravenna, so any inputs, warnings, etc. would be appreciated.
