Re: [Harp-L] Buying new harp

Sometime we buy new harps thinking they are going to be some magic bulitt  
and make us play better. I agree with Michael, play one brand and stick with 
it  with several keys.  Besides the sp20 is a great harp and one of my  
favorites.  I have most of the brands you talked about and I keep  gravitating 
back to the SP20.
Customizing one or 2 (thanks Joe Spires) makes a huge difference too.

the keys  and cross-keys.

In terms of online music stores, Coast to Coast  isnt bad, but they can't 
beat Rockin  Ron.

Stick with Special 20's for  around 5 harps.  That way you are
comparing the keys only, not the  models.  You are learning only about
how keys affect the harp.   Once you get a sense for keys, buy
different brands in keys you already  have, then you are learning to
compare brands.

I heard that  Coast to Coast is a best deal. Look forward to your replies.
