Hello, I am wondering if anyone has an 18th Century Harp made by Webster.
I have never played a Webster harp that didn’t sound wonderful. I have tried many different models. You really can’t go wrong. His harps have great big soundboards which makes the sound carry quite well, and I just love the tone of my own Cecelia. Also he is a very honest businessman.
I’m sorry I don’t, Ben. I can make one when I get home next week. This week I’m traveling and visiting family in Delaware — and the Cecelia is here. In fact, tonight a visiting niece with a 1-year old put the baby to bed and he didn’t want to sleep. She sat with him for a short while as I played the Cecelia in the next room and he gently nodded off to dreamland and stayed tightly asleep. 🙂
When I get back to Michigan next week, I’ll make a clip and put it on my website.
I have a Webster Madame Cadilac which may be more alike to the 18th Century model.
I’ll see if I can post up a sound clip for you and let you know when it’s up with a reply here. If you’d like to chat about the harp and hear it over the phone, let me know and we can exchange contact information aside from the forum.
I have to agree with the other comments here, Mr. Webster is a real gem. His instruments are fantastic and his support of them after the sale is even better.
Hi, I recently played a Webster Madame Cadillac and found the top two octaves to be extremely bright. I was thinking of purchasing a harp from Webster but wondering if anyone else has noticed the B R I G H T tone in those two octaves?? Thanks, Heather
