Hi Charles,

Thanks so much for that (very fast!!) reply. Great to know that it's possible - almost all the footage I've seen tends to be fast walking or running, so I was intrigued to know if it could do something more subtle. I was hoping that the weight of the XHA1 (which I gather is at the upper limit of what the Merlin can successfully handle) actually makes slow moves more easily possible because of the mass of it, but I suppose I won't really know until I get one and try it.

Anyway, that's really helpful. Thank you!

As a harpist myself, I should have guessed that even the most expensive instrument won't make you instantly into an expert player, it just gives you the possibility of getting to a really high standard and demands and responds to a lot of practice. I guess it's the same with this beastie too.
