You will find this harp very
comfortable to play. The staved back is easy to reach around.
The string spacing is standard pedal harp spacing, and the tension
is just right.
The neck and pillar are solid
cherry or alder wood laminated in five layers for lasting strength.
These woods have an excellent balance of stiffness to weight,
for great harp sound.
The soundboard is solid spruce,
with a cherry or maple veneer. The staves of the soundbox are
often a decorative hardwood or matched to the neck wood depending
on availability. The overall visual effect is carefully considered.
Since most public performance
is amplified these days, it is a great advantage to have the
system built right into your harp. I install a Kortier piezo
transducer at the base of each string. These are wired together
and output through a small preamplifier (Fishman Powerjack) inside
the harp. You can use a standard guitar cord to plug into any
amplifier or house sound system. There is no fuss and there are
no surprises. You literally plug and play, and always get big
beautiful clean harp sound with no chance of feedback.
