“Here are four of the harps my daughter and I own, all four from different builders, all with the same wonderful levers, by Betty Truitt! Thanks to Betty’s encouragement, Mary felt confident to completely change the levers on the large Regency, and we have made sure to ask for Truitts on each harp. Their smoothness and purity of tone are superb. Thanks, Betty!”

My Truitt levers are trusted, true and reliable.  Best levers ever.

“I simply love how smoothly they move without a sound and their size is perfect for easy handling.  If I could afford it I would replace all the levers on my Dusty 36!”

“Having helped design many harps over the past 30 years for the comfort of ease and playing, Betty Truitt understood my need for a lever that would not twist my wrist in an un-natural position. Therefore, her ergonomically designed levers protect the player from undue tendonitis while performing. Many times while playing the harp, my eye fixes on the shininess of the beautiful shimmering gold under the lights and for a few moments I feel like I’m transported to a golden temple from ancient days. They do not stick, nor flop, are quiet and smooth, lightweight, and truly the rolls royce of any lever I have seen on the market.”

“With Truitt levers, I feel so confident that the sharped strings will sound true to the pitch I expect. And, the gold plated levers will last longer than a lifetime, without tarnishing!  They are so worth the extra cost and effort to switch from other brands.  Not only does my Hidden Valley Minuet (I call Jubal) have the Truitt levers, but also my Lewis Creek Jesse (which I call Willow) has the Truitt levers.”  (GoDaddy) CelestialHarp.com

“I have two triplet  harps.  A Christina Therapy and a Triplet  Sierra. I chose to have Truitt  Levers on both Harps and just love them. They are light to touch, easy to manipulate,sturdy and look good. I would always use them and recommend them.”

– Carla Whiteley 

“I LOVE the Truitt levers.  I lead sing-alongs at the Trapp Family Lodge in Stowe, Vermont and some of the old-timey tunes are quite sophisticated.  I can flip two levers at a time and be where I need to be because of the quick response and ease of the levers.”

“I have had levers on three harps upgraded to Truitt Levers. When playing at the bedside, I wanted patients to only hear the music, not the changing of levers when transitioning to a new key.  Truitt levers deliver.  They are quiet and do not distort the sound of strings as some other levers do.”

” I’ve been making my customers happy with Truitt sharping levers for nearly two decades.  They’re great.  They have excellent sound, smooth action, look stunning, and are one of the easiest to install.

“Betty is one of my best suppliers!
Her levers and hardware are great – rock solid quality control for the dozen plus years I’ve been using her products.

She maintains an ample inventory, so I’m not stuck waiting weeks for parts.

She and her staff call promptly with any questions they have and are a pleasure to work with.

When I place an order, I know those levers will be in the mail in a day or two.

For novices making their first harp, or upgrading their harp, my top recommendation is to use Truitt levers.

They are by far the easiest to mount and regulate accurately.”

“I appreciate the ease of adjusting Truitt levers, and the string is on pitch when sharped or flatted. Thanks to Betty!!”

“What I love about the Truitt levers, besides their ease and exactness, is the FEEL of the lever itself. Mine are round and heart shaped at the tips and my fingers can FEEL the difference, so I know I am on the right lever.”

“Truth is that most levers will work fine or “good enough” if they are set up properly. Some are more impressive in their ingenuity and the gadget minded appreciate the cleverness of their construction. In the end I don’t think that they are any better than the Truitt lever. I appreciate the simplicity of the design of the Truitt lever. They have a massive base with two screws to hold them securely to the harp neck and the post that contacts the string mimics most closely the contact of the bridge pin. They are elegant to look at and when installed correctly do not degrade the sound of the string when they are engaged. Best of all, for me as the luthier, they are by far the easiest to install. That goes a long way in making them my first choice in levers.”

“Betty Truitt truly pioneered the first high quality lever.  Truitts’ excellent design is easy to install, beautiful to look at and when engaged doesn’t effect tonal quality.”
