Solid, Hand Carved Pillar
It's all about sound. The pillar harp features a solid beech wood support, which works two-fold. The pillar offers unbeatable structural rigidity, allowing for high tension, great sounding strings to be added to the instrument to give an unbeatable, authentic sound. Connected directly between the neck and the sound chamber, the pillar helps to give utmost resonance to the instrument, creating a large sound and therefore more dynamic control to the player. The pillar is hand carved and finished in a contemporary manner, to create an elegant looking instrument.
The roundback harp is iconic. Featuring a large and rounded sound chamber, this harp produces a mellower and softer sound than what you would expect from comparable portable harps. Combined with a larger sound chamber, the result is a large and sonorous sound similar to a much bigger orchestral harp, while still remaining portable and lightweight.
Contemporary design meets modern construction. The harp has been made from a selection of carefully chosen woods to provide you with the best sound, modern looks and premium durability. Featuring a spruce soundboard that is commonly found on violins, cellos and double basses, this resonant wood replicates and amplifies the sound from the strings precisely. The ash sound chamber and beech neck and pillar amplify the sound further as well as create a beautiful look. The Harp is finished with a clear lacquer varnish to maintain the instrument's pristine look for years to come.
Choose any repertoire you like, in any key you like. Years of experience and development have resulted in a supreme tuning lever mechanism, proving accurate semitone adjustment at the touch of a lever. The tapered tuning pins provide stable and accurate pitch control of the strings, even when used frequently in conjunction with the levers.
