    Thank you for the reply. On closer inspection to the photos (which I really should have looked at properly) it has its lowest 13 string minus the second to bottom f then it has 5 more strings. So 18 altogether. I think teifi now use silkgut with the option of natural gut on their harps but I will check.

    I’m going to have a rethink then.

    Many thanks.

    Thanks Wil,

    Yes I’m in the UK. In Wales actually so I have seen a few Teifis second hand.

    I am aware of the AIPS. I will look into it again as an option.

    I’ll hold off on the 26 string I think and continue to save.

    Thank you for the replies.

    Charles I would like to play mainly Celtic and early music, with a little classical too. I have no aspirations to play professionally or even publicly. Playing would be purely for pleasure and I think I would be happy in the shorter term to find music written for a smaller harp. I could transpose I think although I imagine that that would become tiresome.

    Wil I’ve looked at the Ravenna and the Odyssey, they are out of my current price range but I am certainly keeping a look out for used ones. There are a couple of used Teifi Robyns that I have seen that I could maybe afford.

    Naisha I actually rented a Hermine and it was lovely. I am just not able to financially rent and save at the same time even with part of the rent going towards the final cost.
