Description
 
The Roosebeck Minstrel Harp, a table harp is a popular choice of the serious harp student, and intermediate players. With 29 DuPont hard nylon strings, it produces a range from C below Middle C to C above High C (C3-C7). With an extra octave of lower strings, and a larger sound box, it produces a deeper, fuller sound. It is approximately 38" high, and weighs 15 pounds. This Minstrel Harp comes with 29 upgraded Chelby levers for improved functionality. Compared to the standard Roosebeck harp levers, the Chelby levers are mechanically superior. The design allows the lever to engage the string from the side and limit the possibility of strings lifting off the bridge pin. The red and blue colored caps allow you to quickly locate the C- and F-string levers. The lever is attached to its base by a hex bolt. A synthetic washer is spaced between the lever and base, creating a smooth and controlled, lifting action that resists slipping once engaged. The base of each lever is mounted to the harp arm by two screws, should any adjustment be necessary. The bridge pins for the Chelby levers have also been improved; they can be adjusted, in or out, by simple turning with a hex wrench. This Minstrel harp features a hand carved Celtic Thistle design, solid Sheesham frame with a Birch soundboard for exceptional sound and strength. Includes an Extra String Set & Tuning Wrench. Sale Priced with Free Shipping.

5 of 5 Harp for a beginner June 5, 2020
Reviewer: Novice student from Hummelstown, PA United States  
I am a senior citizen who wanted to learn to play the harp. I had experiences with other instruments but not a harp. This harp seems to be the right one for me. It arrived in good condition, and seems to be well built. It looks very nice. Compared to others I have heard, it is not as deep and resonant as some I've heard, but it does sound nice and will be fine for what I want to accomplish. It is holding the tuning now, and the leavers work just fine. Shipping was prompt and cost was reasonable. I will enjoy learning to play it.

4 of 5 I love it! May 12, 2020
Reviewer: Ingrid Romero from Dorchester, MA United States  
Im so happy I bought my 29 Minstrel harp with this company. Delivery was quick  and my Item was carefully packed. I totally love my new harp. It's beautiful and the perfect size for what I need. I am currently a new student and I'm really enjoying doing my practice lessons with it. The sound is soothing to my ears and the designed it's amazingly beautiful. When I received my harp I had a hard time keeping it in tune the first day but after reading the instructions I noticed it saying that it will eventually stay in tune the more I use it, well it's been about two weeks and I just tune it every time I use it but its not too off as before it's getting much better. I also noticed that some of the Chelby levers were loose when I got it but I immediately contacted the company and they resolved my problem quickly and without delay. It's only been two weeks since I got it and I hope my harp  brings me many years of enjoyment. To me it was a well worth purchase.
