Harps for Sale - Lever

Robin builds custom-made lever, double and triple strung harps (See Historical harp page for these). He has been building harps for over 12 years, and initially started building them during his university studies, in order that he would have access to a triple harp. Since these early days of experimenting Robin has continued the development of his harp making and has sold harps to customers in Australia, Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Spain, The Netherlands and the United Kingdom.

Further information about the harps that Robin builds, including instrument specifications and pictures are below and on the historical harp page. For any queries please feel free to send Robin an e-mail.

Lever Harps 

IMG_5036

Robin's lever harp designs are generally adaptions of historically inspired harps, utilising the Gothic, Italianate and English/Welsh shaped harps. Equally too, Robin is also very happy to modify his designs to suit your tastes.

All of Robin's lever harps are fitted with camac levers as standard, featuring cross-grain spruce soundboard and a staved soundbox. Large bodied harps are made with 9 staves, and the smaller body with 5 staves. If desired, harps can be fitted with a rectangular section soundbox if perferred.  All designs can either be strung an octave light with standard gauge pedal harp strings (light tension) or with lever gauge strings (Medium tension). Robin does not recommend stringing with concert gauge strings on his instruments. 

Pictured left is a 34 string lever harp inspired by English/Welsh style triple harps. The design can either be built with a straight or curved pillar, as pictured.

Weight: 8 - 12kgs depending on wood used.
