    I have a 1759 crochet harp. The a pedal broke off and I had a blacksmith make me a new part. I’d love to have a real restoration place make the part, as well as have a few things looked at. After we have all been vaccinated, I’d like to take it to someone who has a complete shop and can make parts. I have tried contacting H. Bryan & Co. in Lynchburg, VA, but am having trouble getting a reply. Someone once mentioned a harp restoration shop in Ohio that also works on European single-action harps. Can someone tell me who that is?Any other recommendations for places a day’s drive from Eastern MA?

    You may be thinking about Tom Bell, harp technician. Search for Bell Harp Tech in Akron, OH. Hope this helps.

    Best wishes,
