Touted as an ideal harp for both lever harpers and beginners, the Lyon & Healy Ogden is a practical instrument for very young harpists and for many teachers. 

The Ogden has quickly become popular throughout the U.S. with school harp programs and Suzuki instructors. Its narrow sound box allows smallish students to play with ease. The harp has 34 strings going down 2 octaves below middle C. 

The Ogden is a well-designed, good sounding instrument. Its design and construction lets the harp grow along with a young harpist's needs. The optional sets of 4" and 8" legs can adjust the Ogden for three varying heights. The instrument is offered strung with pedal tension gut or for a lighter touch, can be strung in pedal nylon. 

For teachers, the Ogden is a worthwhile investment as an additional studio harp, and for those looking to offer students a dependable rental instrument*. 

The Ogden lever harp is part of Lyon & Healy's Bounty programs. The Ogden Package* can be financed through Allegro's financing program.
