Harps for Rent

The harp is a very personal instrument so I encourage students to take their time in purchasing a harp.

Renting a harp is a good idea when you begin your harping journey. You will find that there are many harp manufacturers, and many harp sizes and styles, as well as a wide variety of prices. I recommend that new students try out several harps before taking the step of purchasing.

I have harps for rent to beginning students. These are 35 string Merlin harps, with levers on F's, C's and B's. Each one comes with a case and tuning key. Rental harps are available for a six month time period, which can be extended if necessary. A $100 deposit is required which is refunded at the end of the rental period if the harp is returned in good condition. The monthly rental fee is $60 for the 35 string harps.

If you are taking lessons from another teacher, you may still rent a harp from my studio if one is available. If you rent a Merlin harp and later decide to purchase one, you will be able to buy a fully levered, new, Merlin applying up to three months' rent paid to the total purchase price.
