We especially like to build custom harps, have been in business since the 1990’s and look forward to making your harp dream a reality. We build harps here in Australia for a worldwide market using high quality hardware and furniture/musical grade timber (wood). Harps of all types are possible whether they be labelled folk, Celtic, neo-Celtic, non-pedal, lever, single strung, double strung, chromatic, triple strung or cross strung harps.
In addition to more traditional harps, we have embraced modern technology and now produce a 6 kg 36 string all carbon fibre harp and a lightweight all carbon fibre 26 string therapy harp. We also make electric/acoustic harps with a pickup on each string and MIDI harps.
We repair and restore all types of harps with a specialty in modern and antique pedal harps.
In addition, we strongly believe in the value that the folk harps made by Dusty Strings and Triplett harps in USA offer and we usually have several models in stock. We are also excited about the Harpsicle line of fun and affordable harps which we also usually stock.
Brandden and the Harps and Harps main office is located in Booral in the community of Hervey Bay, Queensland Australia. Here you will find a showroom with harps that we have in stock and we facilitate the sales of new and imported harps. We also have an extensive supply of strings available for most harps. We have expanded to Gympie, Queensland where Ziko heads up our main workshop where we make custom harps, do repairs and a showroom for harps that we make.
Harps are made by Ziko Hart and Brandden Lassells, Luthiers.
Ziko is a well-known musician and creator of fine handmade African Harps. He spent time in Africa to learn about these instruments. Under his company, Harts Harps, he has made innovations such as hemp body harps as well as using traditional materials. His koras and other harps are sought by many.
Harps and Harps is operated by Brandden Lassells as a sole proprietor with Ziko Hart as associate Luthier.
