Harp Kits

String Sets are available in standard, therapy, or folk gut tension.  

Cambria Lever Harp Kits are well designed, with extensive instruction manuals. The Stage 1-3 manuals total 72 illustrated pages. You end up with an instrument you can be proud of. Since people vary in their level of skill, so do the Cambria Kits. They come in three different levels, four, if you count the “plan only”. You can buy the manuals separately so you can see which stage is best suited to your skill level.
