Hi there! I’m interested in finding a pedal harp and have looked at new and used. That said, I am concerned by what I have read about some new harps needing major repair in 10-15 years. I want to make the best financial decision and buy a harp that won’t have issues down the line.
That said, my question is primarily regarding manufacturer errors/defects. How can I best avoid these? I know the warranty offers protection, but I am concerned.
Is my best chance of buying a quality harp is 1) getting one that has been rebuilt/repaired by a harp expert 2) choosing one that is over 15 years old and has stood the test of time (structurally sound, has been looked over by a harp tech, action isn’t worn out, etc. Overall good shape)?
Thanks in advance for your help!
