HARPS FOR SALE:

PEDAL HARPS:

For Sale: Lyon and Healy Style 22, Gold, #1831.
Originally built in 1917, in excellent condition with no structural or mechanical problems. The harp was completely rebuilt and refurbished in 1997. It shows beautifully with no cosmetic scratches. The harp has NOT been played or moved since 1998. There has been virtually no 'wear and tear' on the instrument. The strings have been maintained regularly. The harp appears to have a very nice sound, especially in the middle and lower registers, and there is a large space in the top octaves for the hand, making it comfortable to play. To bring the harp into top playing condition, it needs partial restringing and a regulation. The harp has been appraised by Karen Gottlieb. It is located in San Francisco. Asking price is $27,000, and includes a blue 3-piece padded Lyon & Healy transport cover set. For details and a full appraisal, contact owner Rick Osmon, 415-420-4223 rickosmon@gmail.com.
