Corona Virus update. I will be taking on repairs again from 1st June. I will instigate a much more stringent cleaning process. This will be before I start any work AND after I have completed the work. The harp will then be sealed in a bag and shipped back to you. This additional work will mean the prices have gone up slightly due to the time necessary to complete this work.    

Repairing a harp is not that expensive. I can undertake any work that you require and before I start I will discuss the scope of work with you so there are no surprises.. Here are some example charges.  

  • 1x reed replacement on a single reedplate. reedplate sent on its own ie not assembled. £15. Replacement reed only available for Hohner Marine band. Suzuki and Seydel,Hering reedreplacement cost on request. Price includes whole single reedplate tuned.
