Virginia harp center has two used ones full levers, Dusty Strings

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
