Prices & Ordering
My harps are made entirely by hand, so each instrument will have subtle differences. I prefer to make a harp at my own pace and then offer it for sale. That way a prospective buyer can examine it and try it out, without any commitment.
I can make harps to order, and I am always happy to discuss any personal preferences you may have, regarding wood selection or decoration. I am currently using maple and walnut. Decoration in wood inlay or abalone shell is available at extra cost.
My soundboards are made from sitka spruce and are designed for fluorocarbon strings. Traditional musicians tell me they produce a brighter sound than nylon. They stretch a lot at first, but after a few weeks they become quite stable, and are not as sensitive to variations in temperature and humidity as nylon.
The EALA comes fully levered with CAMAC levers.
The soundbox also needs time to adapt to the tension of the strings, and it is not unusual for a harp to take several months to develop it’s voice.
Delivery time would be approximately ten weeks from date of order.
I only ask for payment when the instrument is ready for collection, however a deposit is reqired for ‘one off’ harps.
