Classic Lever Harps
Petite Pedal Harps

Also called folk harps or troubadour harps, lever harps are distinguished by the "lever" mechanism that lets you change the pitch of each string. Our classic lever harps have sharpening levers on each string and are an ideal choice for someone who may go on to pedal harp some day. We also carry traditional "Celtic-style" lever harps that are described on our Celtic Harp Page.

Classic lever harps by Lyon & Healy and Salvi are built with the string tension and string spacing that is standard for a pedal harp, so their harps make a good choice for someone who is likely to move on to pedal harp some day.

Due to the cost difference between a pedal harp and a lever harp, most beginners start with a lever harp. Many harp teachers recommend that their students get a lever harp that is fully levered ( a lever on  every or almost every string) and that the harp have 34 to 36 strings. This kind of harp is best for a beginner as they won't have to spend time re-tuning strings or making changes to their music because they have fewer strings than a piece calls for. At The Harp Connection, we have a great Rental Program for both new and used lever harps to make starting even easier.

For beginners who prefer to start on a small pedal harp, our Student Pedal Harps (also called "petite" pedal harps that have 40 strings) are described below.

You can click or tap on the image of any harp to see a high-resolution photograph of that harp in a separate window. Our In Stock Inventory is listed towards the bottom of this page.

*Price depends upon finish and options. Returns: We want you to be completely satisfied with your instrument, no questions asked. The Harp Connection offers a 30-day return policy on lever harps and lap harps purchased from our store (except special orders). To be eligible for return, the harp must be in the same condition as when we shipped it to you and it must be returned with all accessories such as tuning keys and books. In the event of a return, you will be responsible for return freight to our Rowley, Massachusetts location. Custom-ordered harps may not be returnable, depending on the requirements of the factory; call us with specific questions about special order returns. Pedal harps can only be returned upon approval of the manufacturer and a 20% return fee will typically apply. We update our web site daily, however all harps are subject to prior sale.
