A Harpy Harp is a strap-on electric-acoustic Harp. It is known for its light tension, light weight and amazing look.

For Begginers


Harpy is the perfect harp for beginners. It is small, light and affordable. The light tension allows beginners to adjust quickly in the learning process. 


For Latin Harpists


Harpy is the best choice for Latin American Harpists. Harpy’s light tension allows performers to play fast and effortless. Harpists can play Llanera music which requires speed and percussive techniques. You can also play Latin rhythms such as Salsa, Cumbia, Latin Pop, Reggaeton, etc.

For Classical or Celtic Harpists 


You might experience a dramatic change on the tension of the strings. This is normal. Harpy is designed to offer a very light tension. This will help the health of your muscles and will prevent tendinitis in the future. The bass section has a 30% tension of the classical harp. You will be able to play effortless and you won’t need to plug the strings very strongly. 




It is important to tune your harp regularly. On this link you’ll find a tutorial on how to tune your harp.

Stand (Tripod)


Having the harp on the stand is ideal to learn or practice. It also helps to keep your harp safe and secure when not playing. See tutorial on how to put the set up the stand and how to put the harp on the stand. 




You can strap the harp and play while moving, walking, dancing or jumping. This will allow you to connect better with your audience and to be free on stage. See tutorial on how to strap on the harp:
