(Regarding her Bourree 28 hybrid) "I am so happy with my little Bourree harp! Played her for patients during 3 different shifts this week. The strings are holding the tuning now and it sounds so warm and lovely already, despite its “newness". Received a number of compliments from patients and medical staff too. Several wanted to “touch” it and couldn’t believe it was carbon fiber. It has a very pleasant feel to it, not “plastic-y” at all, which is a nice surprise.

I think this harp will serve me very well in my work and otherwise. Thanks again for creating this beautiful instrument. I already put the word out on the IHTP FaceBook group site and a couple of colleagues have asked questions. Bottom line is that everybody who does this kind of work is looking for a great sounding, compact, light-weight harp with as many base strings as possible, and this one sure fits the bill!" Michaela B

"The Gwen 34 arrived safe and sound today to her new forever home. I am absolutely speechless at her beauty. I cried when I saw her, the pictures just do not do her justice. The craftsmanship is just plain amazing (I hope that their are apprentices learning this skill because these harps need to be available for many generations to come). I love her voice, it’s mellow, like you said.” Kim M

"I just had to let you know that your Phoenix harp surprised people again. I took it to the 9th Annual Harp Retreat of our harp society (CCHS) and for the first time we did a harp tasting. We included the Phoenix, along with five other makes and at the end of the tasting, people had to guess which harp was which. Quite a few people thought the Phoenix was one of the larger harps because of the full, rich tone that came out of a small harp! Yeah! What a wonderful confirmation of what a great harp it is – from other harpists!" Joanna C

"I just want to let you know that I received my Cherry Eden 26 today. It is so beautiful just to look at. It has such gorgeous sound! Thank you so much for providing such a delightful instrument and a fantastic harp experience." Denise G

From our dealer in the Netherlands: "When I was deciding which one of the (Eden harps) to keep, one of the teachers I work with here was just so amazed again by your craftsmanship. He said, "Each and every harp is different, but each and every harp is very constant in quality and always superb in sound!" " (This shop carries mostly Eden 26, Eden 29, Cameo 26 and Bourree 26 harps along with the other harp "brands" they sell).

"I just wanted to let you know that I took my harp (Phoenix made out of Sassafras) to Richmond last weekend and met two women who play at the bedside. They loved, loved my harp. They thought it was a beautiful harp and loved the wood. But they were really impressed with the sound! I love the harp, but I had not been able to objectively listen to it until they played it for me. I am soooo glad that I got this harp. It suites and fits me in every way. I just love the tone!!! Thank you for building such a lovely harp :)." Marilyn T, VA

About her brand new Glenwood 34 in figured sweet gum: "Good news.. the harp arrived in perfect condition. I am truly awe inspired by how beautiful it is in person. I seriously had tears of joy when I opened the box. I am working on tuning it right now. It’s very dreamy and surreal. This is by far the most beautiful thing I have time ever owned. Thank you a million times over. You guys run a world class operation.. that is for sure." Holly B, IL

"I fell in love with the Blevins Song 26 the first moment I heard it on your website. Now that I have my own, I could not be happier with her. She has the most beautiful tones I have ever heard on a small harp. Thank you for bringing such a beautiful instrument into my life. My "Bonnie" Blevins is always near at hand ready to help brighten my days." Linda C, AZ

"Thank you with all my heart for the magnificent harp, (Brio 24 in figured cherry wood.) The harp is so beautiful; you chose such stunning strawberry-blonde, highly figured wood! (A bit tiger-striped, which I love.) I'm so grateful to you. With its golden sharping levers and rosettes, it is so lovely. I can't believe the sound--so rich and mellow on such a small harp, with an very impressive dynamic range. What an inspiring instrument! I also love the case. It's so well designed, and extremely easy to pack and unpack the harp." Clarinda K, NY

"I have the harp (RiverSong 36) in tune and it is wonderful. The upper octaves are clear and bell like and the bass is full and rich. I love it!" Maryann K, NY

The Mira 30 is beautiful! Lovely sound, not a single problem with it! The gold levers look marvelous with the wood (just like you said they did), and I'm so excited to have such a beautiful and lovely sounding instrument to learn on! Thank you so much for the time and care you have put into making this instrument! It has already brought me great joy, and I can only imagine it will continue to do so. May the joy you've brought into my life today and for days to come, be given back to you a hundred times!" Sarah F

"Hello, I was out of town when the harp arrived, but I saw it today and WOW!!!!! I absolutely love it! The purple heart wood is so unique and seems to shimmer in the light! It is the perfect size for me to play comfortably, and I just love it!!! Thank you so much for making me such a wonderful sounding and beautiful harp!!!!!!! Jennifer G (new owner of purple heart MeadoWind 36)

My harp arrived safe and sound (Cameo 26 in beautiful cherry wood) . It is a true work of art. I unpacked it right away and made my husband put together the stand. We tuned it up - I adjusted the strap and wow - what a sound! What a FEEL. The strings FEEL so good under my fingers - especially in the lowest octave. I am so happy - the harp feels great - sounds great - and looks spectacular! It has a wonderful feel to it - and I could just sit and stare at it for hours." Justine D, NJ

What can I tell you.?? I just love this little harp (Cameo 26 in poplar wood).... it is easier to play than I thought it would be... being she is so small and all....having a ball playing on her and helping her stay in tune.... I love the sound... amazing.... and I can get her nice and loud too!! lol for a little harp, I was a bit concerned she would sound tinny or plinky. But that's not even a thought now!" Jeane J, NV

My Consort 36 is beautiful and it sounds so lovely! The cherry is very beautiful. I keep seeing new markings/designs in it that I hadn’t noticed before. On the soundboard I see pretty marks that look like the circular dimples that pebbles make when tossed in water. It is so pretty. Even the feet are pretty. And I love how it sounds! It’s sound is full and warm and mellow. I love that I can pick it up and move it, too. This has been such a nice experience. Your Consort recommendation was wonderful and this harp is fantastic. I am the queen of second-guessing and there’s not a single second-guess in my heart or my head." Priscilla K, PA

"I just wanted to let you know that my beautiful Amadeus arrived safe and sound on Monday. I love it! I have been showing everyone and am the envy of them all. I can't thank you enough." BA, CA

"This night I finally had the opportunity (after all the tuning) to play one of your harps. Somewhere in the middle of my song I had to stop, just to let you know HOW INCREDIBLY IMPRESSED I AM!! I absolutely do not know any other harp here in Western Europe which has this superb quality and fullness of tone. And then I did not write yet about the affection for your creations that just shines from the details of the harp. I am just proud to be your "ambassador" over here."

"My lovely harp arrived today! (Cameo 26 in red-flamed box elder) I have tuned it up and could not wait to start playing it. You are right - it sounds very lively, but beautiful. I unpacked it at Mum's and tuned it there so they could hear it. They loved it. It is just beautiful (I know I already said that) but it is all I had hoped for. Thank you so much. And now back to my harp." Susan R, Australia

"I finally have the strings tuned up and the Amadeus 38 is WONDERFUL!!! Great sound, beautifully crafted and the perfect mahogany color!!! Awesome job on this harp!!" Linda O

"The harp arrived today, safe and sound. All my questions concerning its appearance gave way to sheer delight the moment I ripped open the box and removed it from its case. Absolutely gorgeous! After few initial tunings, the sound is just as heavenly. I'm smitten and hopelessly in love. Thanks for all your kindness, and for recommending the instructional materials, which I value tremendously. But above all, thanks for building such a beautiful, first-class instrument. The Erin 31 is indeed the harp I've always longed for." Murray S, MS

"Kids wear their new cowboy boots to bed, but this grandma took her new harp to bed!! The gorgeous little jewel, my new Skye 26 of spalted hackberry, is so comfortable to play perched on my lap, with its angled contoured bottom, that I have found the perfect niche for it among my other harps. I reach for it when I plop into a chair, when I slouch back on the recliner, when I curl up on the sofa or stretch out on the patio chaise and dreamily create tunes while watching the sunset. And yes, I even sometimes take it to bed and almost put myself to sleep with the sweet and soothing tones! So I'm calling it my little dreamer! Thanks so much for your artistry and the labor that created it...." Vivian S, AZ

(About her Bourree 28 carbon fiber hybrid harp) "Well, it's time for me to provide my input on my new harp: Thank you so very much for building such a wonderful instrument! Its voice is lovely, although I realize it is still developing. From the first time I tuned it and played, it has been everything I always wanted! It is so very light weight and just the right size for me and I love, LOVE having the low tones. " Lynda F, WA

“I am a student of the Music for Healing and Transition Program ( MHTP) and was attending one of the modules with my Blevins Espre 36 Black Walnut harp. We had to play a solo piece of music for the class. After I did, the entire class said that they loved the resonance of my harp. During the session, the instructor asked if she could play my harp to demonstrate one of the tools of the class. When she did, she said that she loves Blevins harps and her first harp was a Blevins. She asked me what style and what wood it was made from, so I proudly told her it was a 36 string Espre in Black Walnut. Then, I recently was asked to play some Irish tunes for a garden party, and the people approached me afterward to compliment me and asked who made my harp.” Mary R

Well, I have to say that all the information you gave me, lead me to make the very best decision ever! For me, there is no awkwardness! I wish more lap harps were made like this. It is much easier to position and reposition while sitting. The bass is awesome for a lap harp! Just what I need for harp therapy work. And it is just simply beautiful to look at. This is the best therapy lap harp that I have ever played…and to think it is all mine! :-)

What a joyful experience buying this harp has been. You guys are the best! Thanks for everything!" Lynda K, PA

"We spoke ages ago about the Cameo 26 and then I was delighted to learn about a shop in the UK (Pencerdd in Penarth, Wales) who were shipping over some Blevins harps - a Cameo amongst them! With great excitement I went to see them on Tuesday and although I was tempted with the Eden because of it's wonderful sound, I eventually chose the Cameo. I just can't believe how tiny it is - it seems amazing to have 26 strings at my fingertips in such a small and light package! And it is such a pretty shape :) I was worried that the tension would be too light, but you were right, it really does feel fine and not too big a leap from the tension of my bigger harp. I am delighted with the clear bright sound, and I can't stop playing it! Thanks again for your help," Simona (UK)

"I received my Meadowind 34 safely. It is truly very beautiful and the workmanship is outstanding. We have been tuning and tuning and it sounds lovely. Thank you very much for your help in guiding me in making a selection and encouraging me to start work on this lifelong dream. All of your efforts are greatly appreciated. It's wonderful to know that such a fine product and great service are still available in the U.S.A. Thanks again for everything." Linda F

"The harp is here!! (Eden 26) As promised, it's quite beautiful. The tone is very warm and resonant--just what I was looking for in a lap harp. I really do love it!" Brook B

"Just letting you know that my harp arrived yesterday. I was totally blown away, what a beautiful instrument; and so unique. I can't believe she was discounted because to me, she is perfect. In fact, I think the differing wood adds character. She sounds gorgeous, wonderful, brilliant, awesome... and any other adjectives that could describe something so good. Thank you for all your help. " Judith U, UK

"The Avee came this afternoon...it's even prettier than the photo on your website and as I have been tuning it, the tone is even better than I could have hoped. Thank you for all of your patient answers to my questions, our phone conference, and your workmanship." Sherry L, NJ, Satisfied Customer

"It's here, it's beautiful! My husband (also) is very impressed with the sound, and I keep catching him plucking at it when he thinks I'm not looking." Joan K, Canada (about her new Consort 36 harp.)

"Thank you, thank you, thank you! I received my BlevinSong 36...it arrived perfectly and the sound is unbelievable,even now before really breaking it in! I cannot get over it - full, rich and the string tension feels just right. I am in love with this harp. Thanks to you for making this such a pleasant experience! I thought I might be nuts for buying this over the Internet, but I would do it again. It's absolutely beautiful!" Darcie S, GA

"The harp arrived today in perfect condition. I am very impressed by the quality of workmanship that has gone into the making of the MeadoWind and by the ease of which she can be transported. Terrific value for the money. I think she will be perfect for therapeutic music work. Thank you so much." Dana K

"The harp arrived this morning! (Blevins Sierra) Thank you so much for your help, it's a beautiful instrument; every bit what we expected and more! It has been a pleasure doing business with you." Laurie and Melissa C

"My Dulce 26 arrived yesterday and she certainly is a beauty! I am very impressed with the rich but delicate tone quality and am delighted with the graceful lines and curves of the harp. Thank you for yet another masterpiece! A Blevins Harp fan :-)" Deborah B

"Just writing to share how much joy my Bourree 26 has brought into the lives of family and friends. The beautiful Blevins harp is such a huge blessing. I still marvel at its enormous sound." Karen, CA

"The Bourree 26 arrived brilliantly packaged this morning, safe and sound.....What a beautiful presence she is in the house, so luminous, with an exquisite cherry wood grain. Her sweet mellow tone fills all the rooms with warmth." Karen L

"I....tell you how very much I love my Consort 36 harp. She's so beautiful...the cherry is such a warm and inviting wood...and the sound I am able to get from the strings is rich and deep. The advice you gave me to have the feet added was exactly right - I feel very comfortable sitting at my harp. Thank you so much for all the time and effort you took in helping me pick her out. I was nervous about buying a harp "sight unseen" but it was exactly the right choice for me." Nancy B

"THE HARP (Aspen 27) CAME AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!!!!!!! I love it, love it, love it and it is easier to hold than I thought it would be. It is wonderful, and I can tell it will have a great sound once it's broken in and I'm looking forward to that very much. Such a snazzy design and comfortable too. I can't thank you enough!!!!!!!! My (Aspen) harp is absolutely beautiful and it has exceeded my expectations. I'm thoroughly delighted with it!!!" Karin B, MO

"She (new MeadoWind 36) arrived in perfect condition...I played her for hours. She is like a little jewel, with a sweet, clear voice and responsive touch. I can hardly believe how lightweight she is. I look forward very much to using her in bedside work; she's so easy to transport. You were right - I am just delighted." JoAnne C

"My Consort 36 that I received on February 2 (2007) has such a wonderful voice! It just gets better and better. Thank you so much!" Karen G, NY

"I've had a Blevins Encore 34 for 8 years now, since I started harp at 18. It's a wonderful, sturdy thing - it made it through two years in a college dorm! and it continues to be a dependable old friend and a constant source of joy." Michelle

"I received the Espre 36 today safe and sound. Thank you so much for a most beautiful harp. It has been a pleasure working through you." David L

"My new cherry Eden 26 arrived safe and sound and her lovely, clear voice is already a joy to hear. She's everything I thought she'd be, but I have to tell you, I was blown away by her resonance, full sound, and depth of tone. Wow! After a few moments, I even forget I'm playing a small harp. Thanks for a great instrument." Kim S, Canada

"I just wanted to drop you a line and thank you for my beautiful BlevinSong 36! The tone is so deliciously mellow and warm .... I sat down this evening to tune it up again and start to practice - not only did I master sixths as though I'd been doing them for years, but I inadvertently discovered harmonics. This is obviously a match made in Harp Heaven. Thank you again for making such a wonderful instrument!" Briony

"I really enjoy my Encore 34. The tone is superb: warm, with good sustain and good volume. It seems to be perfect for accompanying my voice....this harp is my main harp and best buddy!" Mary L

"Hello and greetings from Germany! I just would like to thank you for quality and sound of one of your harps - a Cynde 30 which I bought in 2006 at Glissando (our harp dealer in Germany). Although I went there to buy another (much cheaper, second hand) harp, your harp was love at first sight and seemed superior in sound and feel compared to all their many other harps. I play every single day with joy on this harp, and want to give my compliments from beyond the ocean." Chrys J, Germany

"My teacher recommends your harps to her students. She said they are well made and have a beautiful sound. Because I really wanted a nice, mellow sound, I decided on the Consort." Laura C

"Just wanted to let you know that I am having a ball with my Bourree 26. I've made it part of my regular background music act, and people are just fascinated by a harp that can be worn on a sling. For such a small harp, it has a remarkably big sound. Kids really like to see it sitting on its stand...it's not as intimidating as the concert pedal harp, so they're more relaxed touching it while it is securely seated." Cathy H

"...(at a harp workshop)..over 30 fellow harpers were in attendance. I lost count on how many folks came to me to share their comments that they felt my Espre 36 in walnut had the richest tone and the best sound of many of the harps in the room. They also remarked about the beautiful finish. They repeatedly stated how they had heard that Blevins was a wonderful shop to deal with..others also complimented you on your incredible professionalism and sincere interest in their harp musicianship. As for me, I am very happy with my harp and look forward to many years of performance (with it). Mary R, NY
