The 26-string Allegro is an ideal harp for any traveling harpist, beginner or teacher. Its 3½ octaves make it conveniently portable yet provide it with enough range and fullness of sound to please a fine-tuned ear. Combining solid wood sides and back with the simplicity of a laminate soundboard creates a clear and bright sound, blending the affordability of the Ravenna 26 with some of the solid wood tone and volume of the FH26.
Available fully levered with Loveland sharping levers, or with Camac levers as an option. A set of straight-tapered detachable legs (included) raises the harp about 11½ inches to a comfortable playing height. Sets of 5-inch or 8-inch legs are also available.
CE26 or CD26 case available separately.

Reviews & Testimonials
DCMomMay 5, 2018I bought this harp for my daughter when she started at age 6. She played on it for 4 years when she graduated to a larger harp (Lyon and Healy - Troubadour IV). Well. I like the sound of this harp better. I wanted to keep it but can't afford to keep both. A great, great beginner's harp. Only one negative comment: The case is "backward" meaning the legs slide down their casing when the harp is upward. Please put the leg casing up. It makes the packing much easier...
Reply from Dusty StringsDustyMay 7, 2018Thanks for the feedback! We actually intend for the legs to be loaded into the case while the harp is on its back, since this is a more stable position. You are quite right that it would be difficult to get the legs into their pockets if you're putting them in while the harp is standing upright in its case, but we worry about the harp falling over in that position, so it wouldn't be our recommended method.
