Plentiful supply for sure, but I'm pretty sure Antarctic ice is on 'the list' so you still gotta be able to prove where it came from. Nice vid though, thanks. :)

Nope,...it's preban so as long as your instrument is made before then,...should be ok. Stump ice i think, and tough to bend harp sides on the heat pipe! Probably best not to ship it out of the country,...just to be sure. The package more likely to arrive empty and damp.

BTW,...really glad the harp doesn't have a yellow patina. :D
