Lap Harps

These are small harps for children, as well as adult harpists who would like an easily portable instrument that can be played balanced on the lap. Smaller harps are increasing in popularity and many pieces arranged for 22 string harp are being published. These harps are ideal for harp therapy, busking, travelling and practising.

Electric Harps

Electric harps make minimal sound of their own and, like an electric guitar, are designed to be played through an amplifier.

Thus, they suit any harpist looking to do things a little differently! Their sound can be processed electronically, allowing limitless sound possibilities. They can be played with a strap or on a stand and, small and lightweight, they can come with you across the stage and become part of the act.

Delta Electric

Entry Level Harps

34 strings are standard for educational use.

Entry level harps are built to combine musicality and functionality with affordability. Many new harpists (or their parents) would prefer to avoid serious financial investment until they are certain that the harp is really the instrument for them. However, few players will progress on an instrument that sounds unattractive and fails to stay in tune. A good student harp will be reliable, comfortable and enjoyable to play with a pleasing tone.

Hempson 34

An affordable, entry level 34 string harp for educational use.

Make: Elyisan; Height: 121/145cm; Weight: 12kg

Lever Harps

34 strings has become the standard compass for lever harps. This size affords the best combination of portability and comfort while playing, with a generous compass which is suitable for the vast majority of lever harp pieces. It is possible to take exams at grade 8 level and beyond on a 34 string lever harp.

Our 34 string lever harps come with removable legs (the Ravenna 34 also features an additional adjustable cello style leg). These legs raise the height of the harp when playing, if required: they can be easily removed for transporting the harp in its carry bag. We stock lever harps with nylon and with gut strings.

Performance Lever Harps

Performance harps are built to fulfill the demands of discerning players, who have exacting needs when it comes to tonal qualities, reliability, playing comfort and portability. These harps have a full, resonant sound with adequate volume and projection. Tuning stability and good regulation are a necessity, as are good string spacing and tension. Performance harps often incorporate design features which optimise playing comfort: these vary from maker to maker.

Advanced players need to transport harps on a regular basis and performance harps should be lightweight compared to student harps of a similar size.

The aesthetic of the harp is important too. While styling is mainly a personal preference, many advanced players desire harps to be finished with specially selected high quality natural woods.
