I have had my bushman harp set for 3 weeks solid now, and no rust. I tested the shell of the harp with a magnet to see if it is steel (Which can rust), and it is... but then, so is my hohner pro harp, and all of my various other harps. Steel is neccessary in the body of the harp for strength, and as long as you let your harp air out after playing it, and knock the moisture out by tapping, you should get no rust on it. The only harp I ever saw rusted was an ancient Hphner Blues harp that I rescued from the seat cushions of an equally ancient Volkswagen Squareback I had purchased. I actually washed the harp in amonia, and steel-wooled the rust off it, and played the darn thing!
