Plug & Play
Plug & Play Harp·E comes assembled, strung and regulated.
Play it straight out of the box!
This package includes:
- Complete fully assembled, strung, regulated and tested electric Harp·E (version 3)
- Includes the stand!
- Battery for the internal electronics
- Assembly and tuning keys
- Assembly and usage manuals (via QR)
- Access to the community group
To fully enjoy and protect your instrument, we highly recommend adding:
- the Carrying bag / backpack - a nifty carrier bag / backpack that securely fits the harp, the stand and extras like tuners and your scores or course material folders (A4)
- the detachable strap plus 2 strap-buckles to play in other positions (delta harp, guitar etc).
You can add all these (the bag, strap, 2 strap buckles) to your order at no extra shipping cost.
This package does not include external electronics like cables or effect pedals. We can help you choose ones suitable to your needs though.
We will ship the instrument with the tension lowered for the higher strings, to ensure they don't snap in transport when they travel through different climate zones. Just bring it back to tune once you receive it. If you are in a very different climate from our studio in the Netherlands, your harp might need to acclimatise a bit.
Warranty: We provide full statutory warranty on all parts (2y). As any instrument strings slowly wear over time and during playing, strings are not covered by warranty after you have received the instrument with all strings in tact. We do offer all strings in our store as spares.
For left-handed players: If you need your harp assembled for left handed, drop us a note it in the comment box in the cart page, just before checkout.

NOTE: The finish is fairly rough - we chose to focus the overal cost budget on other things than a fragile high gloss finish. The wood texture is visible through the coating (Blue Dolphin 2K Oil) - we absolutely love it that way, but you can add a high-gloss or other finish yourself.
You'll received an order confirmation number after placing your order and a courier tracking number once your Harp-E is dispatched.
Prices include VAT. Cheap and fast shipping, no customs.
Outside the EU:
Customs rules and fees vary per country. In some countries customs officers will charge VAT or duties at the border.
The shipping company will usually take care of everything on your behalf or let you know if any customs payment or details are needed and arrange that with you.
The US does not have any VAT, but some states have a small local import duty added of between 0-5%.
Global shipping costs:
We use fast and renown, global couriers for delivery. Which one (FedEx, UPS, DHL, etc.) depends on your location.
Cost depends on how far you are from our Netherlands warehouse, calculated at checkout. To give you an idea:
The EU is around $25.
The UK around $40;
The US around $90;
That's for sending a harp across the world! We can keep these cost to a minimum because of the smart flat-pack design of the harp.
Hong Kong, Taiwan, China, Macau:
You can get your Harp-E from our local HK partner: www.harpchamber.com
or for info: firstname.lastname@example.org
We can ship anywhere. If your country is not on the list of shipping options, just drop us a line! and we'll arrange via email.
Please note that we are not the shipping company nor customs officers ourselves. Customs can in some countries be whimsical or based on officers' mood of the day. This is beyond our control. But we will make sure we choose a renown shipping company for you and will be there to help if anything.
All parts and shipments are checked for quality and completeness and should reach you in good condition. We will aim to make right any shortcomings you might spot on arrival and help with any questions you might have.
The aim of this project is to be able to provide affordable quality harps to as many people as possible. We do ask you therefore to take a lenient and collaborative approach to returns and customer service as they significantly drive up costs for us and will reduce our capacity to keep the price down for future generations harpists.
We cannot offer warranty on parts damaged during the DIY coating or assembly process.
We currently have all versions, strings and parts in stock, so delivery times should be as normal.
Ordering now means you'll receive the brand new Harp·E version 3:
