Harp Hire

Hiring an instrument is the easiest and safest way to begin playing the harp.

It enables you to discover the pleasures of playing with the minimum financial outlay.  For many parents, rental can reduce the risk of directly purchasing an instrument when they are unsure their children will take to the harp.


At Clive Morley Harps, we rent brand new instruments that are available in stock at our showrooms. This means that there are no lengthy waiting lists to join and that you will not receive an old harp that has already been used by several people.*

Most lever harps are available to rent. Minimum rental period to rent a brand new lever harp is 12 months.

Pedal harp rental is available - these tend to be ex-rental instruments.  Minimum rental period is 6 months.
