Single action harps can be a first - low budget - step in the world of the pedal harp. Historically the single action harp ( invented in 1720 ) has been the precursor of the double action concert harp ( invented 1812 by Erard).
In most countries it has been replaced by the double action harp that offers more tonal possibilities. However it survived in Austria and the south of Germany, beeing widely used in the folk music of these regions.
A hundred years ago all of the pedal harps - even those played in orchestras - were built with a straight soundboard. Today all professional instruments - and most of the student models - are bui with an extended soundboard - for reasons of volume and power. However instruments with straight soundboard are nice sounding instruments for the student and ambitious amateur, who don´t need an instrument for playing in an orchestra.
During the last 30 years the extended soundboard has become standard for most pedal harps - intended for more volume in the lower tonal range of the harp.
For professional use in an orchestra or for a solo recital the requirements for a subtle and powerful sound are high. These professional concert instruments can fulfll these high demands .
Masterpieces of craftsmanship and technology that combine quality materials and perfect sound. On special order only.
We offer qualiy harps of Euopean harp builders and beuatiful professional instruments of our own harp building. We support harp beginners with rental program anf financing. However the invest in these instruments seem to be to high for some customers. So we decided to take some import harps from Asia in our offer. Such harps were always on the market , but with low quality . But now we work together with a manufacturer who delievers very decent quality and sell these harps exclusively under the brand DACCAPO We check and fine tune these instruments before selling them, so the customers can expect harps with a very good price/quality ratio.

Sometimes we have an instrument in the workshop that is not shwon here, because the service is not done yet.
If you are not sure if the harp is the right instrument for you - you should try with a rental harp. WHen you decide to buy a harp later, we´ll take 5 monthly rental fees into account.
