Matt Woodbury/Mimosa Shofar Man celtic harps - any good? (2) RE: Shofar Man celtic harps - any good? 23 Apr 06


kat,

I second (or third or fouth?) what the others have said. Sometimes these harps can be fixed up to sound good, but ir reqires major reworking and restringing, and by the time you've spent the money, you might as well have bought a higher quality instrument. I would suggest checking out www.stoneyend.com for decent, well priced harps, or www.blevinsharps.com. Some of my students have been fairly happy with theses as beginner harps, but Dusty Strings are a good buy for the money, and the Ravenna or Allegro are realtively affordable. www.triplettharps.com are really good, too, and many good harps are available used at www.harps-international.com. (use my name and maybe I'll get a commission).

Hope you're well.

Mimosa
