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!
