How Should I Transport My Harp?

If you plan to transport your harp, we recommend that you protect it with heavy duty covers during transit and take care to move it gently, avoiding any sharp knocks. You should also take care when moving a lever harp to ensure that you lift it rather than drag it along the floor, as the latter action may break its legs.

In addition, when laying your harp in the car, always see that the mechanism discs or levers face upwards with no weight on them.

Finally, to protect from extremes in temperature, ensure that you do not leave your instrument in an overheated car during the day or in a freezing cold one at night.
