About Us

David and Mary Jane D'Arville, VHC owners

David and Mary Jane D’Arville, VHC owners

When the Virginia Harp Center opened in Midlothian, Virginia in 1997, we were determined to create a showroom dedicated to serving all harpists. We succeeded by offering the largest selection of harps on the East Coast by some of the finest lever and pedal harp makers in the world including Camac, Dusty Strings, Lyon & Healy, Salvi, and Triplett. But we didn’t stop there.

Our commitment to providing the highest quality customer service to harpists everywhere inspired us to open a second showroom location. Our showroom in Haddonfield, New Jersey, offers the same extensive inventory selection as well as the knowledgeable, friendly and ever-helpful staff harpists have come to expect from our company. It is our goal to help you find the harp that you’ve been looking for. Enjoy.

Why buy from us?

The Virginia Harp Center takes great pride in offering personal assistance to our customers. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is dedicated to keeping our customers happy with excellent service. We offer the following services to make your harp buying experience an enjoyable one:

  • A wide selection of harps to choose from
  • Generous trade-in values
  • A trade up policy for any lever harp purchased from VHC to any new pedal harp we carry
  • Free regulation on new pedal harps
  • Many different financing options
  • A large lever harp rental selection
  • A rental credit towards purchase policy
