String Celtic

How could I know if a harp is of good quality?

Hello. I want to buy an 38 string celtic harp, but I want to know if it's a good idea to buy one online in webpages like ebay or are there brands that are better than the offbrand ones found in this sites.
How could I know if a harp is of good quality?

Thank you

Exercise great caution!
Too many beginning harpers are suckered in by buying a cheap Pakistani-made harp. These are usually made from rosewood, and have some machine-made flowery carvings on the sides. If that's what you're seeing on E-Bay, then I strongly advise against it. They are cheaply made, and of poor quality. As I say so often, you get what you pay for; and even an experienced harper can't make a crappy instrument sound good.
I usually advise beginners that you should never buy a harp you haven't personally played for yourself--it's too chancy. That being said, there are very reputable makers in the United States that I would recommend, but they are different enough in their styles that your personal preference should still dictate which one you choose. I'd recommend anything by Dusty Strings (mine is a Dusty Strings 32-string, in walnut); Triplett and Thormahlen also make high-quality harps.
You don't mention the harp maker in your question; if you like, you are welcome to e-mail me with whatever particulars you know about this harp you're considering, and maybe I can help you arrive at a decision.
