Harp Levers

Sharpening levers for harps?

As mentioned in other questions, I'm buying a harp come this fall and I only have one shot to get it right (they're just too damn expensive to buy more than once or twice in a lifetime).

To buy a harp with pre-installed levers adds several hundred dollars to the cost. So more than likely I will buy install the levers on my own. The problem is, the only levers that are coming up in my searches immediately are Camac, Truitt, and Loveland. And these levers are crazy expensive--$22 or more each! Does anyone know a more affordable brand of harp levers? And preferrably ones not made in Pakistan--I don't want to get burned like I was on my current harp. The sharping levers on this thing take each note up a full step, not a half step! Grrr....

So can anyone help?

Great heavens...where are you finding insane pricing like that??
I'd recommend getting in touch with companies that make harps already; they get better discounts for buying the levers in large quantities, and they might be amenable to giving you a bit of a price break if you really want to install them yourself. So Dusty Strings, Blevins or Thormahlen are all excellent makers to get in touch with. I'd advise that you wait until you have the money to purchase a harp with the levers already installed; it'll save you a lot of work, and they will do a professional job. But if you prefer to do it yourself, might I suggest getting in touch with the Loveland Harp Company, at (970) 532-2249; or Dragonwhispers (this is Betty Truitt's company) at dragonwhispers.com. The Camac levers are French-made, so they will certainly be expensive; I don't think there's any alternative there.
My Dusty Strings harp has the Loveland levers, and I like 'em a lot. They're a lot less expensive than Truitts or Camacs, and they're what I'm used to; but it's best if you try out the action on these lever varieties first, to be sure of what your own preference is. Is there a harp shop near you at all?
If you'd like to drop me an e-mail, I'd be happy to help you further if I can; you can reach me at tgrauzer at ireland dot com.
