To all harpists out there ; please note that the harp should be tuned to 440 Hz and not higher or lower. By tuning above this setting you can do serious damage to the frame and soundboard , also strings will break often as the tension increases exponentially .By tuning lower the sound will not get to it’s full potential

A 50% deposit is required to confirm an order and payment method will be arranged when the order is placed , this can be done online . Final payment must be paid before the instrument can be shipped or collected.
any shipping costs have to be paid for by the client up front if the item is collected and handled by a courier and not the client in person. It is often less expensive to travel over and collect the instrument in person. It can be booked in as “over sized luggage ” and go at a fraction of courier costs , even including your own air fare .
Please visit and enjoy ALL the pages on this website ( links in the left hand margin of the opening page) and see the variety of items on offer. ALL are made by me and I’m not acting as an agent or a shop for goods made somewhere else by other suppliers. All model names are registered and listed under my name . Be wary of so called good offers of Irish harps ( note the two word spelling) on certain websites as many of these instruments are not suitable for playing . If in doubt call me and I will advise you free of charge on the value of the instruments on offer.
