Grand Concert Pedal Harp - Venus Classic 47 String “Rose” Model 75

Asking $14,500 (but hoping to sell quickly!)

Purchased new in 1996, this high quality harp hasn’t been played much by its one owner in years, so is in remarkable cosmetic and structural condition, but also could use a tune-up and replacement of a few strings (new strings included).  Hand-crafted, it exhibits the full, rich iconic Venus bass and an upper register which is clear and sparkling without a hint of harshness. No buzzing, no clicks, no problems with pedals or the mechanism.  It’s quality, evenness, craftsmanship and stability are excellent. Exquisite cascading hand-carved roses adorn the gilt column while the elegant light walnut finish is accompanied by bronze rings and beautiful floral designs along the soundboard and giltwood acanthus decorated feet.


  • custom soft shell padded cover
  • 3-wheeled transport cart
  • music stand with matching wood finish
  • some new strings
  • electric tuner along with tuning key and holder
  • Certificate of Title

Is it possible to find a quality harp on ebay or craigslist?  Yes, but there are a lot of poorly made ones out there.  Harps made in Pakistan do not measure up to the ones made by more reputable makers, and are generally seen as a complete waste of money by harpists. If you are a first-time buyer, please seek the help of an experienced harpist before buying a harp online!
