My Irish 34 is a small floor standing harp, with
features typical of modern Irish or Scottish lever harps. By
carefully balancing all important factors I have developed a
small harp that doesn't sound "small." The volume of
the soundbox is maximized by extending it up and around the connection
of the harp neck. This is also a secure and trouble free way
of stabilizing the assembly. This harp, although I would not
encourage you to mistreat it, is a very sturdy instrument which
will serve you well through all your adventures. The T form of
the pillar and the hatchet shaped harmonic curve are traditional
Irish design features. The Celtic decorations are reminiscent
of those seen on the McFall harps made in Dublin in the 19th
century, and are standard features on this model only. The wood
used for the harp is alder wood. Alder wood is light weight and
has the vibrational properties perfectly suited for this instrument.
And, it looks great!
