Harps Australia provides rental and lease arrangements from the short (1 day) to long term. We have a range of harps available to select from, with a number of rental pools in major cities (70+ harps). We are also able to freight harps to some regional centers or to freight additional models to established rental pools.
27/ 30 strings (partially and fully levered), 34/36, & 38/39 string harps (fully levered) and pedal harps in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra and several regional centres.
We are able to supply harps with ”lever gut tension” (light gut tension) or ”concert harp” gut tension (Sophia, Guster, Lyon & Healy, Salvi and Aoyama lever harps).
Depending on the type of harp, rental periods are for 3 or 6 month periods (apart from short term events). Lever harps may renew for additional rental periods for as long as the customer needs the instrument.
We offer a full deduction of the first rental period for both lever and pedal instruments off the purchase price of an new instrument that is purchased from us. Some rental harps may be purchased after renting, in other cases a new harp can be ordered for purchase - this will be determined at the time of rental commencement.
Pedal harps are available for event hire (weekly rate). As these are valuable instruments, strict conditions apply.
Finally, we offer a “travelling harper” short term rental period for up to one week for the convenience of professionals who need a harp to perform or practice on during their stay in Sydney (subject to availability of instruments). Price on application.
All our rental lever harps are fully serviced and tuned before and after each rental customer. Pedal harps are regulated at two year intervals. Up to three broken strings per rental period are covered by Harps Australia. Thereafter strings costs are additional.
Harps Australia provides several top of the line models for professional harpists, when they are unable to have their own instrument available locally.

Many schools have already benefited from the options Harps Australia provides, with both lever and pedal harps.
