Dear Mr Hors, congratulation for your work on the MIDI harp. I'm a harpist and music teacher from Padua, Italy. I'd like to know if it would be possible for you to make and sell a custom MIDI harp, without levers and with 34/38 strings. Actually, I'm working on a project for harp midi controllers, but I don't have one. So, I'd like also to know its price, if possible. Thank you in advance for your kind reply, Annabella Palleri
As you can see this harp is a (forever ;-) ) work in progress... This is a hobby (I'm a tech teacher), so I'm not working on this project at full time. I'm working on pedals now, but I have really no clue about when in will be working (this summer, maybe...).
As you can see my prototype is usable but have some issues : the design is not set (I'd like to, but experience told me that it will have to be done, at the end of the project, when it will work perfectly). I have also rough time with soft playing (it is not as sensitive as real string), plus different minor issues...
Even if I'd like to, impossible for me to give you a price. All I can say is that the hardware used in my actual prototype costs 700 euros more or less. I guess that it could cost 3 or 4 times more once mounted, wich is not a fair price for a prototype...
I'm not a professionnal, so I'm not able to give a price, and , most of all I'm not able to give a delivery time !
That said, give more details about your project, maybe I can help or give you some advices...

Dear Mr Hors, thank you for your quick reply. I'll give you with pleasure more infos about my project, but I think that it would be more practical by e-mail. Here's my e-mail address: email@example.com. Please write me back yours. Best regards and wishes for 2021! Annabella
