When it comes to lever harps, many of us tend to think of Lyon and Healy’s Prelude – a classic choice, no doubt. But today, we’re excited to introduce you to a hidden gem in the world of lever harps: Salvi’s Ana.
Aesthetic Appeal: Ana might be a lever harp, but it boasts the elegant physique of a pedal harp. With its upright columns, an expanded soundbox, and intricately crafted patterns on the soundboard, it’s a true work of art. The available colors range from natural wood tones to deep blacks, rich walnuts, and even peachwood hues. Ana stands tall at 162cm, with a width of 80cm, a 38cm-wide soundbox, and a weight of 20kg, making it a stable and substantial harp.
Stringing and Mechanism: Ana comes with two factory settings: Lever Gut Strings or Pedal Gut Strings. However, most of our customers opt for Pedal Gut Strings, which offer the same tension and feel as a pedal harp, resulting in a bright, resonant sound.
Sound Quality: Ana is a professional-grade lever harp with an enlarged soundbox, delivering a sweeter and crisper tone. Its versatile tonal range spans from 1st Octave E to 6th Octave A, making it suitable for a wide variety of musical styles and sheet music.
Ana Deluxe vs. Standard: You have two options with Ana: the Deluxe version featuring gold levers or the Standard version with silver levers. In terms of functionality and usage, they both perform just like your typical Irish lever harp.
Made in Italy and Budget-Friendly: Last but not least, Ana hails from the skilled craftsmen of Italy, and here’s the kicker – it’s more budget-friendly than Lyon & Healy’s Prelude. Plus, you have the freedom to customize it to your heart’s content, providing you with even more choices when it comes to your musical journey.
So there you have it – Salvi’s Ana, a lever harp that combines Italian craftsmanship with affordability and versatility. It’s time to expand your musical horizons and embrace the magic of Ana. Happy harp playing!
