Sorry about posting the first topic 3 times, I didnt mean to, am new to this posting !!!
I have an Elysian traditional 40 string harp that I love, I am also really looking forward to moving up to a pedal harp, is the transition easy? let me know your thoughts and what harp you play,
ANY OTHER 13 YR OLDS out there???
I actually found the pedal harp to be easier to learn than my lever. For some reason, lifting my hands to flip levers to change key or put in accidentals always threw me, whereas moving my feet to do the same on a pedal didn't cause such a problem.
I think the toughest thing on the pedal was just getting the timing of my feet in synch with my hands to avoid buzzings and other horrible noises.
