All harps are located at my climate controlled studio in Pine Mountain Club, CA. Since I am not performing as much anymore, I am downsizing the number of harps I own. Shipping or delivery can be arranged, but I would prefer the harps are tried in person at my studio before purchasing.
Salvi McFall Walnut, Serial 824 from early 1980s
The perfect size for a taller adult, the Salvi McFall has 38-strings from 6th octave C to 1st octave E. It features pedal-gauge gut/nylon strings (and Bow Brand lever wires), so it has the same feeling as a Salvi pedal harp or other pedal-tension lever harps like the Ana, Gaia, Prelude, Troubadour, and Ogden.
It was recently restrung and regulated. A matching bench is included in the sale (if wanted).

Thurau Bosch 21-String Renaissance from 2018
Beautiful maple wood construction with an antique coloration. Fitted with bray pins on each string which move and function properly. Semi-tones can be made by pressing along the neck. Strings are mostly original and are in good condition. Range of C below middle C up three octaves to the B above the treble staff (currently strung C to A with both a B-flat and B-natural in the upper octave). Comes with a heavily padded soft case (similar to the Dusty Strings FH cases). I am the second owner of this harp. I had high hopes of loving it, but I find I miss having an extra row of strings for increased chromatic possibilities.

-SOLD- Salvi Arianna Serial 15438
Built in 2009, I am the original owner of this beautiful harp. It has the ”transitional” construction which was available from 2008-2014 on the gilded harps, Arianna, and Scolpita. This style was noted for its new soundboard shape which widened the soundboard past the third while keeping the traditional Salvi body construction. This combination resulted in a harp with increased resonance with a more balanced and full sound which still retaining the characteristic Salvi warmth and fullness.
This harp was rarely moved and was the harp I kept at home while my other harp was used for gigs and performances. One of the few times it was played outside the home was when it was borrowed by Catherine Michel for the world premiere recording of Michel Legrand’s Harp Concerto with The Chamber Orchestra of Philadelphia in 2014. I attended the premiere, but haven’t been able to find a hard-copy recording. It was on Spotify for a few years, but I don’t believe it is any longer.
It was restrung and regulated in October 2022 and is in fine playing condition. Structurally the harp is excellent. There are some very small chips in the finish (not the veneer–just the finish) on the bottom corners of the feet and one very small ding at the back of the right of the soundboard wing, otherwise it is cosmetically pristine.
I’m reluctant to sell this lovely harp, and have spent about two years going back and forth trying to decide which pedal harps to keep. Ultimately I feel a little more in harmony with my other Arianna (which is actually the sister harp/consecutive serial number to this one), and it is time to find a new home for this one so it can be played and loved.
It comes with a three-piece transport cover set, Mahler music stand in walnut finish, and Salvi professional hydraulic bench in walnut finish. The accessories are shown in the photo gallery link as as in the demo video.
