|dulcinbradbury||06:18 pm - Any harpists out there?|
I've been primarily a singer, and, I'm just edging a toe into storytelling. However, for as long as I can remember, I've wanted to play the harp.
On one hand, I do not believe in buying a poor instrument (or any tool) just because you're a beginner. It only leads to frustration. On the other hand, it's hard to justify spending a couple thousand dollars on an instrument you're just beginning to play.
I was wondering if anyone here could tell me about the harpsicle. It was recommended here as a good inexpensive option for beginners. I'd also be curious to know what you'd recommend for a beginner... and at what point you'd advise someone to just move on to a more expensive harp. (For example, would I quickly outgrow the harpsicle because it has no levers (though it would certainly be more period for the SCA I would think)?
Thank you for your advice.
