HARPS FOR SALE:

PEDAL HARPS:
Stacks Image 3187
For Sale: Lyon & Healy Style 17, #2666 - Gold and Cobalt Blue harp. This harp was originally built in 1924. It is a truly lovely looking and unique gold harp with an interesting history which includes being used by Paul McCartney. The harp is a dark cobalt blue which sets off the gold gorgeously. The harp shows beautifully but will require work to bring it to playing condition. It needs a new sounding board. The action could also use a re-riveting but can be used as is. It has not been played in more than 25 years. The harp is being price accordingly - taking into consideration all of these issues. Asking price: $10,500 or best offer. (Mike Lewis and Karen Gottlieb are familiar with the harp. Mike can discuss the options on what can be done to bring the harp to playing condition for a very limited budget. His current estimate is $2500, which would include stabilizing the sounding board and crack, restringing and a regulation. melewis@harptech.com.) Please contact the owner directly for more details and the full appraisal: Joan Firestone, San Rafael. joanfirestone@juno.com. 415-823-7976.

Contact Joanne Addy at jjaddy@yahoo.com, 510-424-2570. Harp is located in Hercules, CA.
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
