Smart Stand without a harp on it

And there’s a cart, too!

Rollling your Smart Stand on the Smart Cart is so easy!

The Smart Stand is a 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 folds flat for transport in one easy motion, yet is secure when in use. 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.

The Smart Stand is a top-quality, handmade accessory that is meant to match the quality of a well-made harp. It should be treated with the same care as your harp. The construction is precise, the hardware is the best-made, the hinges are adjustable, the overlay designs are hand-cut, and the finish is harp-quality. There simply is no finer product available for its combination of sturdiness, usefulness, practicality, portability and looks.

Laurie now offers a free ergonomic Zoom session to all customers to help you get comfortable with your Smart Stand.

    I live in the Uk and have a lovely lap harp but it has a curved back and round holes in the back so that things like lap harp sticks and stands all seem to be designed for straight back lap harps with oblong holes through which the stick fits. I’d love to find something that works for my harp which Im learning to play.

    • The Smart Stand can work with a round-back harp. I can provide or tell you how to make the modifying piece that secures it.

        Hi !
        I have the same issue – a lovely Camac Ulysses that is just a bit short 4-5 inch off the ground would be great – but it does have a round back. Could your stand accomodate that small of a height increase and the round back? The round back is very comfortable against the body- is it possible to have a shorter stand?
        Thank you in advance for your kind attention.

  2. Janet, the Camac Ulysses is 18 lbs., so it is over the warranteed weight for the stand. Whether a round back would work would depend on the location and shape of the sound holes. Normally I would ask for photos and advise accordingly, but in this case, the harp is too heavy.
