Hi, fellow harpists!
Well, it’s been so long since I’ve been on here that HC forgot me and I had to create a new account :/ I need to stop in more often.
I saw an advertisement for a Wurlitzer harp. The sellers have said nothing about the instrument other than calling it a ‘grand concert with 7 pedals’. I had to ask them about whether it was in good playing condition, and they told me that it was and that it was a ‘concert type’ and that it was ‘well cared for and kept up’ (which tells me nothing about whether it has been restored). They mentioned that you had to come in person to see the price. Several people made comments on the advertisement that they always wanted a harp in their living room, but this is NOT a harp that should be used for decoration.
Anyway, beyond that small amount of info, I know nothing. I’ve attached a few pictures of the harp and was wondering if any Wurlitzer experts might know more about the instrument. It doesn’t seem to be as big as my Venus Aria, so I’m wondering if it’s really concert grand. It’s also not as ornate as other Wurlitzers I’ve seen. Any guesses on what model it might be? Would anyone be able to take a stab at what it could be worth? I would like to have some knowledge in hand before considering a purchase since the seller obviously knows nothing about harps. I’m afraid they might have done a basic google search and slapped the highest price they saw for other Wurlitzers on it.
