Some time ago I just wanted to get me a chromatic harp.
Having been disappointed by the quality of a way more expensive harp by Hohner
there was no point in saying 'no' to this one.
the harp comes in a dark plastic case with an interior of red velvet imitation.
My first thought was like 'Oh no, this is really cheap...' but you do not play the box ;-)
The instrument itself is made of steel and plastics. Though wood is said to be better,
there's still the price. Plus the plastics needs almost no care and maintenance.
though it's not as full as other available instruments, the Chromatic 40 still sounds nice
and not like some really cheap children's toy harps at all.
The drawer works smooth, air goes out only where it has to and both directions are well balanced.
To put it into a nutshell, this harp is great. It's better than I ever expected, so I bought
the Chromatic 64 harp later on. Both of them are really fun to play with.
