The Malvern Light Weight Pedal Harp


Finding a concert harp that’s light, portable and affordable has always involved a compromise with sound quality, or the use of inferior materials such as nylon strings and plywood soundboards – until now.

Launched in 2007, The Malvern, named in honour of Edward Elgar (whose 150th anniversary was celebrated the same year)​, combines the traditional qualities of a hand-built instrument with all the reliability and precision expected of a modern concert harp.

This elegant, hand-crafted pedal harp weighs just 31 kg (69 lbs). It has the full range of 47 strings, and is gut-strung to the very top. The Malvern’s uniquely-shaped extended soundboard is designed to produce a tonal range and quality to rival that of the most expensive concert harps.

Extensive research on harp acoustics; careful use of carbon fibre technology in key areas; mechanism plates that won’t tarnish and are fitted with gold-plated discs, bridge-pins and forks and our own special bell-metal cast soundbox ribs, together with the finest precision craftsmanship, has resulted in a harp with increased strength, reliability and quality of sound, but reduced weight and cost.
