String & Go
Pre-assembled. String and regulate it yourself.
Recommended for most people. Stringing takes ± 1-2 hours. Tuning until stable takes a few minutes each time, once or twice a day for ± 10-14 days.
This option is ideal if you are looking for a very affordable quality electric harp and you do have some time to spare to string it yourself.
We'll provide a clear manual and video on how to put the strings on (a valuable skill to acquire), and of course if you already know how to do this then this option is a complete piece of cake.
This package includes:
- Complete fully assembled 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.
Warranty: We provide full statutory warranty on all parts (2y), but cannot give warranty on the success of your stringing or parts damaged while you finalise the harp.
If you want to skip the stringing, tuning and regulating altogether, we'd recommend the Plug & Play package, which can be played straight from the box. If you want to customise your instrument, we'd recommend the DIY package.
For left-handed players: If you need your String & Go 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.

Maybe if IKEA produced the Harp-E it would be even cheaper, - and it probably wouldn’t have great quality strings. It is a very impressive instrument and it has a lot going for it because of it’s very good electric pickup system. I choose the String & Go system, because I wanted to go through the process of stringing and tuning the harp. I found that two of the tuning pins didn’t cut the bill - and I was worried that the overall quality of the components of the harp weren’t good enough. Joris told me that the coming batches of Harp-E will have sturdier tuning pins - and sent me two of the old tuning pins, and two of the new ones for future batches. I have installed the old ones and now my Harp-E is good :-)
I am having tons of fun with my Harp-E and I will recommend it for anyone who likes to play with sound and effects. As a guitarist I already have some great amplifiers and effect pedals - and everything works very well with Harp-E. I do recommend full range amplifiers for acoustic instruments to get the full potential of the sound from the very good microphone and top quality strings.
