I am very new to harp playing, and currently own a lever harp. I will transition to a pedal harp when I have the confidence to do so. There are a few companies to chose from, Salvi, Camac, L&H, Venus, Ayoyama … etc. I would like a pedal harp that is easy on the fingers, and a sound that is gentle and rich. I am not looking for aesthetic carvings that captivate the eye; simply a harp that sounds great, and is really nice to play, and preferably a semi grand.
I thought of the Salvi Daphn, semi grand with extended sound board- your thoughts?
