the Harp Room

Harps are the best-known members of the Lyre family of stringed instruments, having numerous unfretted strings running at a more-or-less perpendicular angle to the soundbox. The large harps found in symphony orchestras have complicated pedal mechanisms which allow the player to sharpen or flatten the pitch of a group of strings quickly while they are playing. We sell the simpler folk style harps here, with manual sharping levers, or no levers at all. Folk harps are especially popular in Celtic music.
