The Wee Nifty 27 Electro-Acoustic Harp.
(NB: An 8 month waiting list now applies to all harp orders placed after the 1st January 2024 please contact us via email@example.com BEFORE placing an order.)
We created this entirely new take on the design of Scotland’s oldest national instrument to allow new players to learn to play the harp and for it to be as affordable as possible. This has been achieved by designing a unique frame and resonator assembly whilst retaining the harmonic curve, string spacing and tension, sound quality, stability of tuning, and playability as the fundamental essentials of a superior-quality instrument designed for learning. All Nifty Harps all have piezo pickup looms pre-installed to the resonator, and accessories available include our bespoke harp stand, a padded bag, and amplifiers.
Wee Nifty 27 Electro Acoustic Harp: Choosing between Unlevered or Fully Levered.
It can be argued that semi-tone levers are not required in the very early stages of learning to play the harp. However, by offering The Wee Nifty 27 in fully levered and unlevered options, you can opt for the most affordable harp version to get you started. Then, as your playing skills develop and your budget allows, you can return here, order a set of levers and book your installation. With the addition of a set of semi-tone levers, you can now play your harp in all the available major and minor keys.
The Lever Upgrade Process:
The Un-Levered harp frame is pre-drilled for our Nifty-specified (Camac) 27 semi-tone lever kit. So once you have ordered your levers and booked an installation date, you only need to get the harp safely to the workshop in person or by courier, and we will do the rest.
