The Taliesin 34 lever harp is an important development in the Sophia Collection of harps in the Harps Australia rental pool. This instrument is a 34 string fully levered harp with pedal gut and slightly lighter Pirastro wires. The firmer tension stringing encourages the development of advanced technical work for students who want the option of going on to pedal harp playing. For the professional player, this instrument offers a warm resonance tone and more dynamic range than lever gut stringing. The Pirastro bass wires are rich and mellow. This harp features two height positions: floor ages 8-11 or very petite adults; and screw-in legs ages 12-adult heights. Legs unscrew for convenient travel size (The harp in its case fits across the back seat of most cars, or in larger car boots). Standard finishes are natural wood or ebony. One set of legs, tuning handle and fully padded sturdy carrying case are included. Talliesin 34 harps from the rental pool may be purchased after rental, for a pre determined price before the rental commences, depending on its cosmetic condition if the harp is a used instrument. Or the full first rental period may be applied to the purchase of a new Lyon & Healy or Salvi harp, pedal or lever instruments.
