NEW: After the retirement of Beat Wolf the restoration section is now overtaken by his successors:
PETER DEMMERLE, Schaffhausen » www.tuggi.ch
and CHRISTOPH MANI, Guggisberg, Bern » www.mani-harfenbau.ch
The palette of restoration features ranges from purely conservation / maintenance work over playability adjustments up to a total renovation, whereby the available substance of the instrument and its state of repair will determine the approach required.
A careful restoration takes the biography of a harp into account and allows only moderate and reversible intervention (less is often more) so that the charm of a venerable piece can breathe on. For enthusiasts of antiquities the conservation of a harp is the mostly practised method, as this harp is not requested to be played.
