I currently have two harps already (DS Ravenna 34 and Salvi Daphne). I’ve always liked the idea of a small lap harp for traveling or playing in the park. There’s a thousand posts asking about what’s a good lap harp already. My question is specifically about the Vavra brand Celtic Cherry 22 string harp made by luthier Chuck Vavra in southern USA.
I recently saw someone mention this harp in a facebook group and they really seem to enjoy it, and the price tag is $440 USD which is appealing to me as this would be my third harp.
However, I can find almost nothing about this harp (one review, only a couple sound samples). The maker is too far away for me to visit before making a purchase. I was hoping to hear other people’s experiences with this luthier’s work and/or the Celtic Honey 22 in particular.
I like the sound samples I have heard, and I think that with F, C, and B levers this little harp could be perfect for the Scottish/Irish music I really enjoy playing for a low price that I can justify to my husband. 🙂
Thanks in advance!
