Thanks everyone! :oops:

Yes Camac levers on the 34 strings and Robinson's on the 29,

for the sound bites, my mic is broken, and recording with only the piezo pick up does not sound true to me, any suggestions ? :D

I use the Zoom H2. The microphones in it are great. I just set it back a bit and get both the harp and ambient reverb from the room.

thanks everyone!

here's a link of me playing a couple of tune... not so well :oops:

it is recorded on a ipod nano, so sound quality is not comparable to the real harp, but at least you'll get an idea!
