Blevins hybrid vs heartland sound


Does anyone out there own a Blevins hybrid? How do you like the sound of it, compared to a Heartland carbon fiber harp? (I know neither will be as satisfying as a Dusty) These are difficult to get access to unless you attend a harp conference. Listening to sound bites online is just not the same as hearing or playing either live.


Since the shapes are different, there’s no way one could make a general comparison about how a hybrid would sound vs. All carbon fiber. Only those specific designs could be compared.


I’m just wondering if anyone out there has played BOTH - and what their comments are about them. I’m thinking a 36 string instrument for both.
