Built by Jim Mosley around 1990, this 25 string harp features a full set of Robinson Levers along with hand carving on the neck. Strung with Folk Harp Gut, the tension is a bit light and the spacing is fairly close making for a compact harp.
Dimensions: Height at column 32", depth at 20" and 11" at the base of the soundboard. Weight is 10 pounds.  See video demo on our site HERE  
 
 
The Salvi Arion SG is unique in the Salvi line. Its new concept sound board starts spreading further up the harp to create a smoother line to the extended part of the sound board resulting in a full, well balanced sound throughout the instrument. Complete 47 string range but at 70 inches and 81 pounds, it offers a bit more ease in transport. More info HERE   
 
 
 
Venus Diplomat Concert Grand In Natural Finish Pedal Harp Pac  kage comes back to us after providing 13 years of enjoyment to one of our customers who has recently downsized. Purchased in 2005, it has been well maintained through the years and even had a full checkup the first of this year with all new strings and complete regulation by Peter Wiley! Rarely moved, it is in pristine condition and has a full, rich tone. Along with the harp is included the thick, padded Venus cover (not pictured) , K-2 brand 6-wheel dolly, matching bench and a very unique matching music stand.  See more  
 
Venus Premier Package Concert Harp Serial Number 3131 in very good condition.  Well maintained, this Mahogany finish Pedal Harp was last regulated March 2018 by Peter Wiley. Due to a career change, the current owner is switching to a smaller harp for regular air travel. Perfect for the gigging harpist, the American Harp Cart brand dolly is included along with the full 3-piece Transport Cover set.

Please review our Privacy Policy, as it has been updated.  Please know that you may at anytime unsubscribe from our list.  We use Constant Contact as our email announcement software.
At the very bottom of this announcement you may click to unsubscribe.  You will not receive any untoward or further e-mails because of your unsubscribe.
If you want to keep in the loop, but not receive our e-mails, please consider liking us on FB.  We'll post our announcements there.  If you need to change your e-mail, you can use the unsubscribe option to do that, too. When we send out these announcements, many times we receive a great deal of orders, and sometimes we even run out of certain titles.  We attempt to keep a 4-month supply of each title on hand at all times, based on the current and previous year sales history. If we have run out of a title, you won't be able to order it, but please know that we make every attempt to restock within 10 days.

We generally ship using media mail.  Media is printed or recorded matter, and it used to be known as "book rate" or "library rate".  It is the least expensive way to ship.  We use new box material, or a cardboard support in a new padded envelope to protect your music. We have found that new packaging material survives the journey best, so we don't use recycled material when sending out your orders (except for bubble wrap and paper padding), but we encourage you to recycle the packaging material you receive from us. We flatten and recycle all cardboard boxes from our vendors, and we reuse the bubble wrap.

Your friends at Melody's!
