SKU EMSHM29

Our 29-string Minstrel Harp is a substantially built, Celtic lever harp. It is an ideal beginner instrument for people wanting to see how they get on playing the harp before investing in a more expensive, larger harp. It has a 4 octave range which requires less arrangement of music than smaller harps!

This harp is strung with nylon strings which produce a bright tone. It has low tension which is perfect for players who are worried about the strain on their fingers.

Our Minstrel harp has metal semi-tone levers on all the strings except the top octave. These levers work well and even improve upon playing in the harp. It is made of beech with a laminated soundboard, has a painted Celtic design and traditional style carvings. 

Hear our Minstrel harp being played!

  • A soft-padded, black canvas case
  • Tuning key
  • Spare set of nylon strings

    Amazing Harp!

    So far it has been an amazing journey and I couldn’t be more happy with the harp I purchased from Early Music Shop. Besides, they have a 5 stars customer service! Totally recommend this store for people thinking on getting an instrument!

    EMS Minstrel Harp has exceeded all I hoped for

    At 70, and a complete beginner having never seen a harp close-to before, the minstrel harp is a dream come true. It is a great size, lighter in weight than I expected, and the tone is superb. It was simple to tune initially (we did buy an electronic tuner but there are Apps available) and after just a week it is needing tuning less and less. Even practise pieces sound wonderful and I would recommend this harp for anyone who wishes to create simple, beautiful music. For me it is so therapeutic and soothing.
