Nifty Harps come in three standard configurations: un-levered, partially levered and fully levered.
In the early stages of learning, some teachers suggest that levers are not immediately required. We supply the un-levered version of our harps harp to make the initial purchase of the harp as affordable as possible. However, as your playing skills develop, you will likely want to be able to learn a broader range of music in different keys or play alongside other instruments without re-tuning the harp each time. All of our harp frames are therefore pre-drilled so that you have the option to retrofit our bespoke Camac levers, either individually or using our upgrade packs.
We specify Camac levers on our harps, primarily due to their accuracy, reliability and build quality. The levers are optimised to suit Nifty Harps, so we strongly recommend only selecting what you require from this site.
Lever upgrade options:
To upgrade your un-levered or partially levered Nifty Harp, you can select from the following options:
Partial set: 11 levers – for installation on the un-levered Nifty, this will bring your harp up to the same specification as the partially levered Nifty. Fitted to the C, F and E♭ strings, these allow the harp to play in the four major and minor keys of F, C, G and D. Top-up set: 16 levers – to upgrade a partially levered Nifty to the full complement of 27 so you can play in all eight major and minor keys.
Full set: 27 levers – to upgrade your un-levered Nifty to the ultimate version for complete flexibility in playing all eight major and minor keys.
Individual levers: Consult your harp teacher if considering this option. They may suggest adding only the levers needed to select the required key for specific pieces of music you are learning. This method would allow you to spread the upgrade investment over a more extended period.
Lever replacements: If replacing a broken lever, please ensure you select the correct one using the list on this site.
