Harp music, solo and in various ensemble combinations, is imported directly from most publishers worldwide. Spares are readily available for all SALVI and LYON & HEALY harps. We are in constant contact with all the major harp manufacturers and parts for other makes of harps can be arranged.

Avondale Harp Enterprises also arranges to have your harp serviced and regulated by a qualified harp technician every two years. The harp technician, Billy Hornby is a member of the Technicians Guild. We do all the arrangements to fly Billy in from the United Kingdom to service and regulate all SALVI and LYON & HEALY harps countrywide. Billy is available to work on any other make of harp provided Avondale Harp has been informed timeously, in order for us to order any parts required.
