Brooke, I emphatically agree that a customized Voyageur can be an outstanding harp. Indeed, all the Musicmakers’ harps are good just as stock design and can be excellent if one wishes to invest $200-$500 to upgrade the basic kit. They really put a lot of thought into the design.
As a for instance, you can lower the Voyageur range by two steps (with fiber/silver in the last few), or keep the C-A range but substitute BFN in the bass, fluorocabon or gut in the mid for an entirely different tone. Or go all out with the above and a spruce sound board. Spend a little more again for Camac or Truitt levers instead of Lovelands and – wow!
