What is a Lever Harp?
Lever harps are smaller than pedal harps and have between 20 and 40 strings, with 34 being the most usual. When engaging a lever with your hand it will raise the note of that string by one semitone. For example, a lever on a string tuned to E-flat will raise it to E-natural. These harps are specialist Folk harps in their own right but are also ideal to learn on.
