Callan 26 is a 3 1/2 octave 26 string lever starter harp fitted with nylon strings which makes it an ideal instrument for students and beginners. With a fully adjustable floor stand, Robinson levers fitted on the C’s and F’s. additional levers can be added on request

To date, I have made this model using ash, beech, cherry, walnut, birch, elm, sycamore, yew, hornbeam, maple and alder.

Callan Harps offers a full refund on this harp when up-grading to a 34 string harp


Custom 26 string:

Coloured                        Wide sound-box, cedar sound-board, carbon strings









Custom Callan 26 string fully levered harp

This 26 string model can be also customised with a larger sound box, a spruce or a cedar soundboard instead of birch wood.

This option allows for the use of carbon fibre instead of nylon strings which, combined with the bigger sound box will provide a bigger sound and a better tone.

Please contact me for more information.

    To whom it may concern
    My name is James Hogan, I am the principal of Durrow N.S in Co. Offaly. We are involved with music generation and currently have 6 Callan 26 Harps hired from them for our school. The kids are really taking to the harp and enjoying the opportunity to learn it. As part of our musical development programme and remembering our late colleague, Ashling Murphy, we are in the process of purchasing instruments for our music room which will be dedicated to her name. Ashling was murdered on the 12th January 2022, this has left an awful void in our school and in her family. Traditional music was very important to her and it is also very important and strong in our school. We will continue to grow the music scene from strength to strength just as Ashling wanted too.

    We are looking to inquire how much a Callan 26 harp is to buy and have you any in stock? To develop our programme further, we want to purchase some harps for the school to have of their own. I would be grateful if you could let me know as soon as possible.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.
