    I’m looking for my forever harp and have really become intrigued with the Teifi Eos. I’ve never had the opportunity to play one but they sound amazing. Is there anyone in the group who has a Teifi and what do you think?

    YES! I’m in Cornwall in the U.K. and bought a Teifi Eos at the end of 2019. I worried about spending so much money but it is the best thing I ever did. I LOVE the beautiful rich tones and although the gut and wire strings take a bit of getting used to after nylon strings it is worth the effort. I am 73 now, so if my fingers can cope I’m sure anyone’s can. By the way, I named my harp Marguerite, as all the roadsides were full of these flowers when I went to visit the Teifi workshops. Where are you? I have since bought a lap harp too for taking around with me.

      I am in the US. I’ve seen tv shows about Cornwall and it just seems like a beautiful place! I hope to visit there one day. Cost is a factor for.me as well but I love the harelquin wood and the birds on the sound board! Sigh…….maybe soon

      Fforgot to mention. The Prelude I play has concert gut so that’s what I’m accustomed to. I love that rich tone!

    I love my Siff Saff and can only imagine how wonderful the Eos will be for you! I live in the US and hope to visit the Teifi workshop someday.

        II think think the Siff Saff has a beautiful tone as well! Did you find it in the US or straight from Teifi?

          I bought it used from a little music store in Burlington,Vermont that used it as a rental. It was in great shape (although I didn’t know enough to recognize it at the time!). The owner of the shop didn’t have the gut strings that it needed and they were out of stock with the online store I found, so he put me in touch with the Teifi people in Wales. They were wonderful to work with. Good luck with making your decision!

    Hi Susan,

    That’s funny, because my profile photo has to be so small you can’t see that I am actually sitting at my Eos with my little lap harp on my knee. The Eos is a harlequin, black walnut and ash, and the lap harp has the daisy flowers painted on the soundboard – I call it “Daisy” – of course. Happy harping.

      I just returned my rental Prelude….named Duchess and exchanged for a Lyon and Healy Ogden that I call Major Winchester. I’ve not come up with a name for my dream harp yet. I guess I will have to wait and see how she (or he) strikes me.
