This is a great instrument, by far the best one of yours that I've played to date. You've managed to strike a fine balance between a good chord sound and acceptable intonation on single notes. The harp has very much a vintage Marine Band feel, but it's also great to overblow. Basically it does everything I require. Congratulations!

"The harps of Hanke have a rapid-rate of response and their tuning is fantastic.
The harp developes into a chromatical instrument on which even the overbends can be bended.
The harps of Hanke offer a high degree of convenience of playing, especially caused by the atmospheric density and
therefore fully sounding bendings."
