The Sharpsicle™ harp
Not every harp needs to have every bell and whistle. Sharpsicle™ Harps, with sharping levers on the C and F strings, have found a number of niches in the harp world where they are precisely the right harp for the job. Because they are lightweight and easily played on a strap, Sharpsicle™ Harps are frequently the choice of harpers who go into hospitals or NICUs or elder care centers or hospices to play. Sharpsicle™ Harps also have just the right range and levers to accommodate a significant Celtic harp repertoire. Programs like the International Harp Therapy Program have been recommending Sharpsicle™ Harps for more than a decade and have spread these little harps around the globe as a result.

The Sharpsicle™ Harp
The Sharpsicle™ Harp has levers on the C & F strings making it well-suited for Celtic music and frequently the choice of harpists wishing to have a harp for music therapy as well as the recommendation of most of the major harp therapy programs. The Sharpsicle™ Harp is also incredibly popular with harp and music teachers for use with students. It can be played in the keys of C, D, G and the relative minors and it has bridge pins on all the strings so additional levers can be added later if desired. This is a great, budget-friendly model with expansion opportunities not available with the basic model in the line. Comes with string chart and tuning wrench.

Sharpsicle™ Harps are most often purchased by those planning to use the harp for therapy or by Celtic harpers who are purchasing either a first harp or a travel harp. For all harpers planning to transport their Sharpsicle™ Harp on a regular basis we recommend a Harpsicle® Harp Bag. We also recommend that every harper carry a second chromatic tuner and back-up tuning wrench in their bag just in case. You also may wish to consider an extra string set because strings seem to "know" how to break at the most inopportune times. Most harpers find that a Harpsicle® Stick makes it easier to have your harp at the right height and easily balanced when playing. Since therapy harpists often stand near a bedside to play, we recommend a harp strap. We have a selection that includes both a simple strap and some really wonderful straps made by this dynamic little business we fell in love with many years ago. We have supported this special little strap company because the unusually soft underside of their straps does not damage the finish of our harps and we love their colorful designs. We have a Therapy Harp Package, a Irish Pub Package and a 911-HARP KIT to save you some time and trouble in picking out accessories.
