Harp practice requires dedication, skill, love, and access to an instrument. We exist to bring affordable, reliable, well maintained instruments that are matched to the student’s need (ie. height, learning stage, budget, teacher’s preference, etc) and rented by the school year. No risk, no big investment, no complexity.
We offer mainly 46 string student harps by different harp makers for home practice. We love classic Salvi Orchestras and the newer Daphne 46/47. They are workhorse instruments for many students through the years with good sound and solid construction. (We tend to avoid the lower cost Salvi Daphne 40 models because all but the smallest players quickly outgrow them.) The Camac Schola is our favorite for taller students yet still great price performance. For those who do an occasional performance with their home harp, but not ready for the full expense of a concert harp, our Liuteria Artigana (ex-Salvi harp makers) Deneb tends to be a good compromise.
For students who will use their harp for home practice and performances, the Salvi Aurora concert harp offers an excellent balance of sound, durability and price.
