Some old-timers may remember me from a few years ago. I once tried to get a harp shop started--I even went down to Arizona and studied customization of harps with Chris (Buddha) Michalek.

Well--my wife got sick--had to go back to real work--blah, blah. . .I never did get the harp shop really going.

However--I collected up a huge pile of stuff for this shop. I am now selling off whatever is left from those good old days--I don't have the time or energy to do that kind of work now. Here are a couple of photos of the stuff I have for sale. I will only sell the whole mess in one shot--don't ask me to break out an Ab harp for you.

There are about 35 or 40 Marine Bands that I got from Ebay on a package deal way back when--(they are bagged by key)--they were damaged somehow and the covers are rusted--some really badly--some not as much. They will all probably need new covers and combs. There is also a collection of combs--some I made--some just saved--a bunch of tools that I made or just collected--two old chro 64's that need repair--and a bunch of just odd parts. I have never opened up one of the rusty harps to find anything but pristine, new plates. (Your mileage may vary). There are a couple of aluminum combs that I made and did inlays with a fake turquoise treatment--don't know if they would work out or not.

Well, just study the pics below to see if you're interested. I think there is a lot of value here just in spare parts--the weight of the whole box is about 23 pounds. I will actually give this stuff away to whoever wants it--but, there is a catch: I would want $100 for my time and effort in boxing the stuff up and shipping it--plus, you pay the shipping.

If that seems steep--make an offer, but I'd rather just put the whole mass into a dumpster than mess with it for nothing.

Thanks for looking!

Forgot to say above that the pile of harp boxes are just empty boxes...

Hey Mike, you might be too late! I think he got an offer from the post on the main page--I should have alerted you earlier.
