: I've been playing harp about two years,and learning
: as I go. The store salesman sold me on Honer Marine Band harps (Wood over other type).
A great question to ask a sales person?
Do you Play Harp??
Ive been witness to, lets say, less than good
advice from salespersons who may be well intentioned, but know little of what they speak.
Theres an old saying from the sixties, "If you dont know your dope, know your Dealer". Ask someone who plays harp, if you can. If not, thats where this site comes in real handy. Get several opinions, then make your choice. A wood bodied Marine Band is Not a good choice for a first harp IMHO, they leak like a sieve, swell and become sawlike.........bluz
