    What is the best choice of a chair/stool for the harp player to sit on? My husband suggested I might like to have a back on my stool.

    I have a bench but I do miss back support.

    I use a Stokke Tripp Trapp chair (https://www.stokke.com/en-is/highchairs/tripp-trapp/TT03.html) in the adult setting when I play the harp. I use a stool sometimes but I much prefer having the back support.

    I removed the arms from an office desk chair. It’s padded and has separate adjustments for seat height & angle, as well as back height & angle. It’s not wide enough to interfere with pulling my right elbow back for the highest strings (like when using a bow and arrow). Very comfortable.

    I use this height adjustable foldable musician chair.

    I have been using this chair for over 2 years now and i just love it. You can make the front legs one hole shorter than the back legs and have no pressure on the back of your thigh. That is very comfortable for long practice sessions and improves posture over-all because the pelvis is at the correct angle for an upright, effortless upper body posture. I highly recommend this chair. I broke my back in two places and this chair takes the stress off.
    It is easy to store and transport, as well.

    I bought a drum stool (the Basix DC-2.2). It is so nice to sit on it. OK, it doesn’t look very harpy but your back will be in the neutral position nearly automatically.

    Hi there. I would love to get one of the suggested foldable and adjustable musician chairs from Amazon. But I live in Ireland and they ask for 177 Dollar shipping costs. Does anyone know a cheaper way to buy and ship them to Ireland, please ? I have never ordered anything from the States before. Any advice would be appreciated. 🙂
