Lever harps are often also called Irish harps or Celtic harps. We are also the makers of Harpsicle® Harps. Rees has been building harps since 1972. Our harps are hand crafted in Rising Sun, Indiana, United States.


Our Harps

From our 36-string Rees Aberdeen Meadows Harp to our 23-string Morgan Meadows Harp, all of the harps in our Concert Lever Harps Line are built around what makes this harp the best harp for what you want to do. Whether you are playing for yourself on a 30-string Shaylee Meadows or playing for huge audiences on a 27-string Morgan Meghan, the job of each harp we make is to respond to and reflect the player. That we make both a C to C and an A to A Aberdeen Meadows Harp or both an F to A and an A to C 34-string Mariposa Harp is an expression of our commitment to this principle. We now also build a double harp version of all our harp models. And everything we build is available with either our multi-award winning  standard or our fully custom ornamentation should you so decide. Your joy is our reward.


General Information About Lever Harps

Even if you have been playing harp for a long time you still probably have some questions about why things are the way they are with harps. It isn't always obvious and, to complicate matters, since harps have been around for something on the order of 4000 years all kinds of misconceptions have risen up along the way. In this section we start with the most basic things like parts of the harp and a glossary of lever harp terms, work our way through all kinds of issues related to things like string spacing or  wood including our work to be environmentally responsible and even touch on things like how to find a harp teacher or a harp repair person.


How to Care for Your Lever Harp

In this section we begin with what to do when your harp first arrives along with tuning basics and tips. From there we provide information on everything from minimizing string breakage and preventing cracking to the regulation of levers. Harps do require maintenance and attention but it's nothing too difficult and we know you can do it. Don't worry about trying these repairs and know that if you have any questions it is our pleasure to be of service.


About Us

Whether you want to contact us, want to know our story or want to know where we will be this year or during which holidays we are closed, you can find our all of that in this section. Also, with the exception of Garen (see photo of us pointing at right) there's probably something wrong with us...but you already knew that.

Once you decide on the model then you get to decide on  the wood  and that's just the beginning.

Ordering Your Harp

Even if you are a collector of harps, ordering a harp includes a number of decisions. In this section of the site we walk you through the decisions, answer common ordering questions and provide our terms and conditions so that we are all on the same page. Know that if anything is unclear, we are here and it is truly our pleasure to work with you to design the harp of your dreams.


In the Rees Marketplace you can order your harp, choose the wood, select your ornamentation and find all your accessories. 

Rees Marketplace

Our new Marketplace allows you to easily specify your custom harp and shop for your harp accessories at your leisure from anywhere in the world. Once you have decided upon a harp model, read about your wood choices and then browsed our ornamentation catalog (or decided to have us do something entirely custom for your harp) the Marketplace will accommodate the complexity of your order right here on-line. Our staff will then reach out to you to confirm all the details and we will get your new Rees harp underway.
