Hello y’all! I am wondering if a harpsicles would be better for me. I just started playing in January and am 62. I am playing for enjoyment and , when I get good enough, for church. Since the Ravenna that I am renting to own is so expensive I wonder if a harpsicles is a better match. Any input? Thanks
Hi @laurie.oshea , in terms of richness of sound, volume of sound and ease of stability of the harp while playing, you’d be significantly better off with the Ravenna you’ve been renting to own until now.
Yes, a Ravenna costs more than a harpsicle, but when you’ve progressed a bit, I think you will prefer playing a Ravenna.
If one of the aspects of your question has to do with the weight of the harp when you need to carry it, the harpsicle is the lightest, though there are some other, real great sounding lightweight harps, like the Lewis Creek Nightingale and the Lewis Creek Jessie Ultralight.
