Comfort, Beauty, Stability

This beautiful, sturdy playing stand for small harps (warranteed up to 13 lbs.) holds your harp conveniently and securely at a height that is right for you (it’s adjustable), at an easy-to play angle. You never have to tip it back or grasp it! Its unique design also acts as an extended soundboard, which can enhance the tone of your instrument, and you can even clip your electronic tuner onto it! The stand easily folds flat for transport. It is perfect for many types of small harps without feet, such as lap harps, therapy harps, and others that are too small to sit on the floor.

This ergonomically designed stand is made available by Laurie Riley, a pioneer in the field of ergonomics with over 30 years of helping harpists play pain-free. For more detail on how the stand works, see the bottom of this page.

From happy customers:

“I absolutely LOVE this stand. It is even better than the pictures. The cherry wood matches perfectly with my harp. The instructions were so clear. I appreciate how the adjustments allow the harp to be placed in the perfect position for playing, making it so much more than just a stand. My little harp has only one good-sized hole in the back, so the lowest position worked quite well. The pictures really don’t do this solidly built stand justice. I am just thrilled with it.”

“I got my harp stand. You are so right about it acting as a sound board. It really makes a difference. Thank for an awesome invention!” – Stacy Salles

The Smart Stand  is designed for harps up to a maximum of 13 pounds, with flat or staved back. If the sound hole is round it must be at least 2 inches in diameter. (If the hole is oval it will fit the knob no matter the measurement.) You can adjust the position and height of the reversible knob/clamp at the top of the stand: there are several levels of adjustment to set the right height for you. The knob goes in the front it you want quick and easy attachment/removal of the harp, or the clamp goes in the front so you can slip it through a sound hole and clamp your harp down tightly.

Never use the smart Stand to support the weight of your body. It is designed for instruments only.

Return policy: If your Smart Stand does not suit you for any reason, just return it in new condition, insured, for a refund. All you pay is shipping. Refunds are issued upon receipt of the undamaged stand. Returns of a defective stand must be arranged by email or phone with the vendor.
