Hi,

Thank you so much for the thoughtful replies. We are going to be traveling through lots of countries (UK, Germany, Italy, France, Belgium, Netherlands) and yes, playing in London on Dec 1, 2, and 3.

We ended up finding a harp from this place:
http://otjaharpcenter.nl/. Great price and renting a beautiful 30.

I have to say that the big sort of obvious places (Lyon and Healy, Salvi, Camac, and some others suggested) were either completely unresponsive or didn’t have a harp to rent. I was really surprised that our manager was having such trouble, since our budget was reasonable and I am not extremely picky. Maybe it’s the idea of something so valuable traveling with strangers..

But thankfully this came through. You’re right, shipping seemed to be far more of a hassle upon researching it. Seems like it’s better to go through smaller shops or individuals.

Thanks for the response!
Mary
