Wow, that's a big difference, I know the difference isn't in the reed plate,is the comb thicker? Honestly though on one hand I want one, but at the same time I could get 4 or 5 Manji's or Olives for the price of one Fabulous. Could also buy custom harps for the same money.
I wouldn't think that putting either brass or aluminium in your mouth is good idea. Stainless steel maybe not so bad but I don't suppose it's 'medical grade' that hey use for covers.
One of the features of brass instruments (I mean trumpets etc.) either plain or silver plated, is that they naturally supress the bacteria, mould etc that would otherwise grow in their warm, wet tubes. Might be doing the same to your mouth!
And what about the wood combs or the lacquer they seal them with? Just because wood is a natural product doesn't mean it's good to chew on. All kinds of nasty things in wood.
The plastic combs use ABS I believe which is used for storing food, so that's something. But it's plastic so, you know, always a question mark.
I had one very nice harp that played well but it tasted funny - so I stopped using it. Alarm bells.
