The harp you should buy depends on what you want to do in the future with the harp.  If you'd like to play classical pedal harp, you should start with a harp with similar tension and string spacing, or consider starting on a pedal harp. 


If you just want a small harp to sit in your lap and strum, you could consider some of the more affordable models.


As a rule, it is better to save money for a longer period of time and buy a better harp. Find a teacher and talk to them before buying a harp.

Where can I rent?
