Anyone know if Camac has started building harps in Pakistan??
I ordered a Camac Bardic 27- I thought it was coming from the UK as listed on the website. Shipping now reveals it originated in Pakistan-
Wiki describes all Camac harps as being made in France, but that seems to have been entered in 2007.
I was a little worried over the deal, and queried Camac of France about this vendor on eCrater. I never got a response from them. He seems to have their complete line of harps for sale and uses their descriptions and specs verbatim, but his pictures seem to lack the Camac logo plate on the pillar- does anyone know if that’s been dropped?
This site seemed to pop upon the search engines when I first found it, but now a search of Camac harps for sale doesn’t bring it up like it did. It would seem to me that if somehow this is some kind of ‘bootleg” harp, then Camac might put some pressure on the site- or using their descriptions and even their color choices.
The other thing was that the price more than doubled after I queried Camac, and now more the norm. I could have ordered one more locally at the same price then, but probably wouldn’t spend that kind of money at that point. Strange. I was just going to press for a refund when finally given some tacking information. I’ll just have to see what arrives I guess. Caveat Emptor. “Let the Buyer Beware”
