    My Grandma recently passed away and we’ve inherited her beloved harp. I’m intrigued by the instrument, looking at the pictures does anyone know what make it is? What model it is?

    Thank you in advance.

    That is one of the Paskistani made things but they go by several “names” as the construction is farmed out to several who then put a “name” on it. Sorry I can’t tell you more since I don’t consider them much. As to quality, some are OK and others not.

    And Biagio, doesn’t that look like a crack in the soundboard about one octave above the bass end–cross-grain, far side of the harp, right about where the edge of a string rib under the soundboard would be?

    Zooming in on the photo, sure looks like about a 4 inch long crack to me.

    I did not look that closely Charles, though I do note that an F string is broken.

    What a lovely inheritance and memory from your grandmother. ❤️ How long did she play?
    This harp does look like a small harp made in Pakistan.
