This is my first time posting on this forum and I came because I really need some advise. I have been playing the harp for 7 years and am currently playing a 40 string pedal harp from Lyon Healy. I’m now looking to buy something smaller and more portable to bring to college with me so I can stay in practice. I am looking for something with good sound (I’m not a big fan of the therapy harps I have heard) and pretty standard string spacing. Also, I am a petite person (5’2″) and I really do want this to be a harp that can rest pretty comfortable on my lap.
I have found many harps online and I really don’t know how to choose so I’m hoping that I can get some feedback on them:
25 String Lap Harp from Another Era (scroll down a bit)
Juno 25 from Salvi
One of the Stoney End harps
Allegro from Dusty Strings
One of the Blevins Harps lap harps such as this one
one of the Harps of Lorien lap harps
I am anxious for any feedback people have on these harps or any other recomendations/input that you might have!
