Ordering: A $1500.00 deposit is required to start your harp order; kantele deposits will be established by telephone. Delivery dates vary, depending on the type of wood and configuration of the instrument you are ordering. We will need to talk with you either in person or by telephone to begin your harp or kantele order. (360) 576-8111 evenings.

Warranty: Harp prices include a five (5) year warranty for defects in materials and workmanship. This does not include damage from abuse or neglect (ie: leaving it in a hot car, other exposure to extreme temperatures, failure to humidify, sun damage, or water damage). Strings are not included in the warranty, although in some cases, they may be warranted by the string maker. This warranty does not cover shipping costs. Blessley Instruments does not offer any other warranty either expressed or implied.

Cancellation Policy: Once your harp has been ordered and the deposit has been received, Blessley Instruments considers your order to be binding. Should you cancel your order, $200.00 of your deposit is non-refundable. The remaining deposit money will be returned to you after the harp we are building for you sells, or after we receive a $1500.00 deposit from another buyer of your harp.
