    Ravenna 26 Dusty Strings

    Ravenna 26 Dusty Strings lever harp, in very good condition with Loveland levers.

    I purchased it as a starter harp. It has a lovely sound and, weighing only 6.3kg, is very portable.

    It also includes the studio stand which can be fitted to the bottom of the harp to raise the height to a fixed position or as a stool. The stand is easily dismantled for transportation.

    It comes with fully padded carry bag, dust cover, tuning key and chromatic tuner. Also a range of information sheets eg: on how to look after harp, change the strings etc.

    Price: £1500.00

    All clarsàch classes will be online this year, and there’s a whole host of events, both competitive and non-competitive, to get involved in – something for every age and level.

    Check out the clarsàch syllabus extract below, or view the full syllabus online.

    If competitions aren’t for you, but you’d still like to take part in the world’s greatest celebration of Gaelic culture, have a look at our two open performance classes: C6 Introductory (for less experienced junior players) and IC2 (open to all adult players).
