I’ve been playing harp for a little over a year now, and am seriously
considering purchasing a pedal harp. Because it’s been over a year,
however, the “rent towards purchase” deal we signed up for is up.
Nothing we’ve paid for will go towards my future harp. I know that I
won’t be able to pay for a pedal harp up front in one lump sum (being
that my dream harp does cost above $25,000), and I’ve heard that that
is how you pay for a harp. Is that true? Can I make monthly payments
(similar to buying a piano) and take several years to pay it off, or do
harp makers (such as Salvi or Lyon and healy or Aoyama) let you pay it
off little by little? After some research, I know that Venus harps lets
you do that (the “pay monthly” deal), but do the other brands allow you
to do that too? If it does indeed turn out to be a “pay up front”
matter, I guess I’m doomed! =(
Any help is very much appreciated! Thank you!
