I’m a beginning harpist – as in, I’ve had a “trial” lesson, and with my next paycheck I’ll finally have saved up enough to start renting-to-own my harp. It’s going to be a 34-string.
There is a used lap harp for sale near me. It’s about 20 years old and has 19 strings, the owner is unsure of the brand but it’s from Europe. She says it “could use a restringing at some point”. My question is, would it be beneficial for me to buy this one as well, for something I could take with me? (I’m out-of-town alot, and my parents are divorced, so my harp would be staying at my dad’s). It’s $225 plus a case, and I have no idea if this is a good deal or not, or even if I should be considering this. Maybe it’s just my desperation to finally have a harp taking over?
Everyone on here seems to be super-knowledgeable. I have no idea how to restring a harp or how much it would cost. Any help/advice/anything would be super appreciated!!
