We are distributors of new lever (also termed non-pedal, Celtic and folk) harps manufactured by Camac, John Pratt, Rubarth “R” harps, and Triplett. Pratt harps are concert tension harps, while Camac makes both folk and Celtic tension as well as concert tension harps. R harp and Triplett harps are folk or Celtic tension. We carry lever harps that are well engineered, have warranties and are reliable. Our harps must meet strict sound and reliable quality standards.
Camac made lever harps reflect the same excellent care and innovation that their wonderful pedal harps demonstrate. Camac makes a great variety of lever harps from the small 22 string Bardic, through the 40 string Mademoiselle, and includes models strung in fluoro carbon , gut, and nylon depending on the model. Camac levers have been acknowledged as the best available anywhere today. Camac Harps are made exclusively and entirely in France. Camac performs all its wood and metal manufacture in a meticulous and environmentally sensitive manner with excellence.View items...
There are two different types of electric harps:
A. Electro-acoustic harps: The R Harp “Merlin” and all Triplett and Camac harps offer the option of a state of the art “pickup” system, installed by the maker, that amplifies the natural sound of the instrument providing consistently balanced sound amplification throughout the harp.
B. Electro-harps: Purely electric without a sound board or sound body, these harps are perfect for stage work. Wearing the halter a performer can move freely on the stage. Using the adjustible tripod the harp can be used in a stationary format. It is ideal for Jazz, Pop, Spiritual, New Age. An amplifier can be used with headphones enabling the player to be heard only in the head phones.
We are exceptionally proud to represent and distribute all five
models of John Pratt’s wonderful hand-crafted harps throughout
the US as well as internationally. The initial model, which he produced, the “Chamber Harp”, is based on Sam Pratt’s (“Affairs of the Harp”) original “Dauphine”. John's harps, available in a choice of woods, use
concert strings at concert tension, and have a rich quality sound
and excellent reliability. All models come with a 5-year warrantee.View items...
The design excellence, sound quality, and light weight of the
“Merlin” were brought to our attention by a master harp
builder and restoration expert. After speaking with several
harpists who had bought this harp, we decided to represent
this fine harp in a number of domestic US markets and we
export them to Holland. With 35 strings of nylon, fluoro carbon and wire, fully levered and with a state-of-the-art pickup system installed, this
harp is a winner.View items...
