I have two beautiful lever harps that I absolutely love. One is a large 39 string cherry wood harp made by Australian harp maker Rick Hickman. I designed this harp myself and Rick brought the drawings I made to life. The harp is strung with high tension nylon and gut and has Loveland levers. This harp is now over twenty years old and still sounds terrific. Unfortunately Rick doesn’t make harps anymore so if you have a Hickman harp you are very lucky!
My other harp is made by the wonderful people at Starfish Harps in Scotland. It is a Glencoe model made from cherry wood with Delacour levers. It is a wonderful instrument and I have been very impressed with the after sales support from Starfish. They also sell hard fibreglass cases for their harps, which I think is fantastic and adds significantly to the protection of your instrument when travelling.
