Product Details

Musicmakers Harp Wheels are a simple, effective, and wondeful way to transport your harp. With three differenct sizes you are sure to find a size that will work for your harp. All of our wheels includes two hand brakes allowing you to play the harp while the wheels are still attached.

And YES - our harp wheels can handle the weight of a pedal harp. Our harp wheels can hold harps that weigh up to 100 pounds.

Please Note: Musicmaker's Harp Wheels work best with Musicmaker's Harp Cases. It can be difficult to modify another brand of gig bag to hold our wheels. However, if you want to use the wheels with another brand of harp and you just need to roll the harp around without the case, they should work fine.

What's Included:
Handy in the Woodshop? We offer a DIY kit for the harp wheels. Click here to learn more.

Choosing the right size

Available in three different sizes.

Small: Size of base is 13 in. wide by 14 in. deep. Fits our Jolie Harp, and our Ballad Harp

Medium: Size of base is 16 in. wide by 15 in. deep. Fits our Voyageur Harp and our Gothic Harp

Large: Size of base is 18 in. wide by 15 in. deep. Fits our Cheyenne Harp and our Regency Harp

If you don't have a Musicmaker's harp you will need to take a couple of measurements to choose the correct size wheels.

Find the points on the bottom of your harp that contact the floor and take measurements to get the width and depth. See the picture for an example. When you have your measurements, choose the smallest size set of wheels that will accomodate your harp.

LOVE my harp wheels!
Leann Marshall
Just wanted to let you know how much I LOVE my harp wheels. I received it today and immediately strapped my Dusty Strings Crescendo onto it, and I still can't believe how easily I can now transport from one room to another. The medium size base is the perfect size for my harp and is not too wide to fit in the corner of the room where I keep it when I'm not playing it. My husband and I have occasional back issues and I was looking for a way to move it without either of us straining our backs. Thank you so much for a wonderful solution.

Clever, functional design
Catherine Madsen

I have a Dusty Strings FH36 and a Stoney End Loralea (same design as the Lorraine but strung F-F). Both work well on the medium size platform. Unlike the photo, the Harp Wheels is now designed with two straps, one at the back and one at the front, which makes for more versatility and safety. Haven't tried with the harps in bags, but will want the wheels mainly for indoor use anyway. Another satisfied customer!

Harp wheels for my 36 string concert Oladian harp.
Sharon L. Habener
I am very satisfied with my harp wheels for my 36 string concert Oladian harp. I am studying to become a certified clinical musician and will use this harp cart to travel all over the hospital playing for patients at the bedside. I have a 26 string therapy harp which is portable and nice, but it is great to have the option of using my 36 string oladian, which has the wider range and more lush sound. I ordered a size small, and it is working fine. Is a bit long, but that is okay. The straps hold it in place just fine. I might be using the forward strap around the pillar of the harp more often than over the feet, as the straps are a bit stretchy. Overall, very convenient. The brakes work great.

Safe, sturdy & simple transport system
Mary R.
Verified Buyer
I love the sturdiness and simplicity of my Harp Wheels. They are so much easier to use and space-saving than having to lug around a heavy non-collapsible dolly or cart. I also feel safer and more in control when moving and making turns, because I’m actually holding onto my harp or its case, and not a cart handle. I also appreciate the braking system, which ensures my harp moves only when I want it to, and as the video shows, even play while the wheels are on. Mr. Brown and his measuring instructions were very helpful. I am very pleased with this purchase and Musicmakers’ customer service.

harp wheels kudos
Denise Bennett
I love my harp wheels! They have made a huge difference in my work as a chaplain in a retirement home because now I can move easily from one area to another without being a workman's comp claim waiting to happen! Still trying to decide how out how use them with my gig bag. There was a luggage place that fixed the zipper so maybe I will take it to them. Bungee chords seem a bit too tenuous. But thanks so much for this great product!

Not really satisfying
Stefanie Bieber
Verified Buyer
I bought the harp Wheels for my Dusty Strings FH36. It seemed to be a good idea and a much cheaper solution than buying the very expensive Harpo, even considering the high shipping costs to Germany. The first surprise was that I had to pay another 45 € for customs when the Wheels arrived. Okay, nothing can be done about that, but it would have been helpful to have the information about that before the order. I tried to fix the wheels to my Dusty Strings Bag and it did not really work with rubber straps as shown in the video. They are much too loose, so that the wheels fall off when lifting the harp up the stairs or into the car. I found a quite complicated technique to fix the wheels to to the harp bag, but then the next problem appeared: the Dusty Strings Bag dos not have a handle on the backside but only on the front side of the bag. So it is quite unsafe to roll the harp around because it can easily slip away and fall. So all in all I have spent too much money on a - for me- kind of useless tool. :o( The idea basically seems to be clever but it only works with the music makers bags or with a lot of (expensive) additional adjustments like shown in Susan's review. My final estimation is: not of good use or of good prize for the European customer.
Sorry to hear about this. There isn't much we can do about customs and we try to make it clear that overseas customers will be responsible for import duties taxes and customs. It can be a challenge to use our wheels with bags from other makers. Usually folks can get them to work well enough for standard use but getting the wheels to remain attached while lifting the harp or going up and down steps with the wheels is a challenge indeed.

Wheels for my Harp
Kathryn Pitkin
Verified Buyer
I am delighted with my wheels. I was beginning to find it difficult to carry my harp, but the wheels make moving the harp easy and safe. The wheels are beautifully made, easy to use and arrived from overseas within a week. I love my new wheels. Thank you.

Brilliant invention!
Verified Buyer
These "wheels" are a brilliant invention. If there were 10 stars I would give 10. Working in a hospital for me means walking around carrying my harp and at the end of the day aching shoulders back and arms. The wheels have solved the problem. No more stress carrying the instrument, no pain, just the sheer joy of playing the harp with no worries. The wheels are beautifully made and arrived in Australia in record time, beautifully packed and ready to go. The wood is also amazing. Thank you.

It is perfect
Chris Blaicher
I got the large size for my wife's Dusty Strings orphan FH-34 and asked for it to be unfinished. A D-S orphan harp is made from several different woods, hers has a bubinga base and front post. I stained and varnished it to match the bubinga. The base makes the harp even more stable. It is great.

These wheels will make a big difference in my hospice work. It is a simple looking device from a brilliant design idea that anyone with a folk harp would welcome. The 'heavy lifting' part of my work has been greatly reduced -- thank you!

I love my new harp wheels.
Verified Buyer
The wheels are so helpful in aiding mobility and they are easy on-easy off! One less thing to worry about when out and about. There was not much lag time for arrival, a definite plus. The other thing that I really liked was the easy to open, not-excessive packaging. All in all, another positive experience. Thank you!

I think these are going to work just fine for my Dusty Strings Ravenna. I was hoping I could move it without having to remove the legs and platform that it sits on. This may be just the right fix.
