I am so frustrated in my search for a good used pedal harp, preferably a Salvi Daphne model here in Canada. The classified ads (gosh there are SO many available harps for sale in the U.S.!) here are all for American customers. For us in Canada, we have the exchange rate, shipping fees, border fees and insurance which makes an instrument purchased here at least another $4-5 thousand dollars to get it into Canada! 🙁 It just doesn’t seem fair that a Canadian has to pay so much more for the same instrument that a U.S. citizen buys…..
There should be a classified section for us in Canada. Is that a possibility? where Canadian Harp players can advertise their instruments because I have only seen maybe 1 or 2 in the past 2 years here. We love and want to play a good quality, beautiful instruments too, but the only place to really search is ‘kijiji’ where some are posted but infrequently. Does anyone know of Canadian harp dealers who carry new and used harps that are in stock, and don’t have to be ordered from the States and brought into Canada? and if there are dealers, how come they aren’t listing their available harps to the public?
