    I am looking for a good lap harp that has full levers and the most sound I can get for a small sized harp.

    I played a Stoney End Brittany for years.

    I had a chance to play a Triplett “Christina” a while back, and thought
    it was absolutely lovely.

    Looking for one also this last week.

    What I found was, doing a search here a few folks here really like the Belvins Bourree 26, Mezzo 23. they have sound clips of the two and all there harps on there web site.

    Virginia harp center has two used ones full levers, Dusty Strings
    Allegro $695, at the bottom of there used harp page. Looks like a excellent deal. They also have Timothy Aedh at a good price too.

    I’ve heard really good things about the Timothy Aedh.

    Barbara, also Blevins Harps has some excellent deals in there closeout and specials area. As others have mentioned here. There may be a minor blemish. But it seems most include a case as well. Plus you can buy it now. But as Jennifer mentioned a month wait isn’t that long. As Blevins is a month wait as well for a new harp. that seems a standard wait time.

    That used Timothy Aedh has a bump on the front lower part of the sound board. You may what them to send you a clearer picture of it to see for your self how bad it is. But the price on it is excellent.

    The Revanne 26 at 39 inches tall is concidered a mid size harp, but with that built in pull down stand. Might be ideal for your needs for playing out and about affairs.. They have a pic at there web site. Km

    Thanks Janet, this is good advice.

    …my mistake, my little harp has 25 strings.

    I definitely think you should include the Christina in your search, if
    you haven’t already.

    I agree about rethinking the smaller harp.

    Lap harps have their charm and for some kinds of work are much better than a larger harp.

    Since you’ve already checked Stoney End and probably their lighter Gothic harps, one I like is the Musikmaker’s Limerick Lap Harp. You can purchase it ready made; 26 strings; 12 lb. http://www.musikit.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=CTGY&Category_Code=lim You can
