If you choose to order a harp from us you would need to decide on a model and, if you choose, extra features you would like to go for. We would negotiate the final price after which we would require a deposit of 1/3 of a final price. This deposit normally covers only the cost of all the materials (timber, strings, brass, tuning pins, etc) and some overheads.
Once the materials are purchased and the work on the instrument can be commenced, an installment of another 1/3 of the final price is required to enable us to work exclusively on your instrument. And when the instrument is finished we require the balance to be paid in full before you can collect or we post the instrument.
While we make every possible effort to finish all the instruments as quick as we can, there is a waiting list on all orders. For regular low headed models the waiting list is about 6 months from the moment the deposit is paid. For models requiring hollowing out, ie. professional models and replicas, the current waiting list is significantly longer. Please email us to enquire about the current waiting time estimates.
All our Cláirseachs and wire-strung harps have a 10 years warranty, granted they are kept in appropriate conditions. Each instrument is issued with a certificate with care instructions.
