Like many harps in Israel, and especially Russian harps, Ayelet’s harp was never serviced by a harp technician and required constant maintenance. Caring and maintaining that harp was Nadav’s harp school. Through his work on Ayelet’s harp, Nadav learned the full mechanism of the peddles, springs, discs, and more. Soon more people approached Nadav to receive assistance and maintenance for their harps and Nadav fell in love with this complex instrument. Each harp has a unique personality and sound and just like us humans: no two harps are alike.
Due to the difficulty purchasing harps in Israel and due to many requests from aspiring harp musicians, at the end of 2011 we began to import harps to Israel. We are the official, certified representative of Camac Harps in Israel. In addition, Nadav is a certified Camac harp technician and these days he also travels to service harps in Europe and East Asia. Today we maintain an inventory of harps for sale at our store in Tel Aviv. We have a large variety of harps, from low cost Celtic harps to high end pedal harps for orchestra musicians. At our store you can find over 20 models of harps for purchase or rent. For those wanting to experiment with the instrument before committing we initiated a rental program, which also gives credit towards purchasing the harp once the lease period is finished.

In 2013 we became involved in and donated to the “Sulamot” music program, a special program of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. In this program, the students learn to play on the Bardic 27 harp in 4 schools throughout Israel. We provided harps to many conservatories allowing many new students to be exposed to this amazing instrument.
At the end of the 90’s we imported a pedal harp for Ayelet. In those days, it was a difficult undertaking with no internet, exchange control, and more. Our success forged a path for importing additional harps. The harp was inherited from Ayelet, and enraptured us. Our home echoes with its tones, and we lovingly care for it.
