Our goal is to build the best sounding, well crafted harps possible.

We especially like to build custom harps and therefore look forward to making your harp dream a reality. We build harps here in Australia to a worldwide market using high quality hardware and furniture/musical grade timber (wood).  
Harps of all types are possible whether they be labeled 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 as well as making electric/acoustic harps with a pickup on each string and even MIDI harps.

We repair and restore all types of harps with a specialty in modern and antique pedal harps.  As we feel that Camac Harps are today‚Äôs best-made pedal harps we have become dealers for Camac pedal, lever, and electric harps.

We feel equally good about the folk harps made by Dusty Strings in USA and usually have several models in stock.  We are also excited about the Harpsicle line of fun and affordable harps which we also usually stock.  This business is operated by Brandden Lassells as a sole proprietor with Ziko Hart as associate Luthier.

Harps and Harps is located in Booral in the community of Hervey Bay Queensland Australia.  The workshop is a modern fully equipped facility and we have a dedicated harp showroom usually with over 25 harps in stock.

Harps are made by Ziko Hart and Brandden Lassells, Luthiers.  


Brandden has followed his dream by combining his love of working with timber with a love of harps to create Harps and Harps offering harps of all kinds.  He combines his formal training in crafts (MFA from The School for American Craftsmen) with 50 plus years experience as a builder and craftsman along with time spent with other harp makers and luthiers in order to make quality harps.


Ziko is a well-known musician and creator of fine handmade 'African Harps'. Under his company, Hart Harps, he made innovations such as hemp body harps as well as using traditional materials. His koras and other harps are sought by many.

Our goal is to produce excellent sounding custom harps. Our reputation for warm, rich sounding harps and many satisfied customers attests to the fact that we have reached this goal.
