Harp cases are storage devices for harps to protect them dust, dirt, scratches, and impacts. They are also used for carrying and transporting them from one place to another. They usually feature a large storage space to contain a single harp, several internal and external pockets, a secure locking feature, and handles and straps.

They usually have adjustable straps for carrying by hand or over the shoulder.
Hard harp cases
Hard harp cases are made of solid and durable materials such as wood, carbon fiber, and fiberglass.
They provide excellent protection from shocks and forceful impacts.
They are bulky and heavy.

Choosing Harp Cases (Buying tips)
