Lyon & Healy is by far the oldest and most respected harp maker in the world today. They have been making harps since 1885, and the second harp they sold now over 100 years old is still in daily use today (the first is on display at their Chicago headquarters). No other maker even comes close to this achievement.
Lyon & Healy has made a century-long commitment to steadily improving the harps they make as new production techniques become available. Most telling of all is that the majority of pedal harps played in the top 10 orchestras of Europe, Canada and the United States are that of Lyon & Healy, or its sister company, Salvi of Piasco, Italy.
Nestled in the verdant rolling countryside near Turin, Italy there sits the unexpected a harp factory where fine, old-world traditional craftsmanship flourishes in the company of modern, high-tech computer-aided design. Salvi harps has been in the business of making what many say is the most reliable harp on the market today for over 50 years.
Salvi's Engleman spruce soundboards are famous for their warm sound. Many years of research in sound production (which continues today) has produced harps of unmatched evenness of tone quality from one register to another. The design and construction of the neck of the Salvi harp helps it stay in tune, reducing the amount of time needed for tuning.
