Testimonials

I think her smile pretty much says it all. "This harp is magnificent! “First, the craftsmanship and finish are flawless and the harp is a pleasure just to hold and admire. Every part of it says 'attention to detail'. This chord bar stack has the best action of anything I've tried. And how do you make your harps so light weight? “This harp has a unique and beautiful sound. The strings are bright and really ring! Especially in the upper registers sometimes they actually sound like bells. The bass in general is strong and resonant - I can play melody in the bass and it is clear and distinct. This harp conveys a very rich harmonic experience. And all that after just unpacking it and playing it for a few hours. I'm looking forward to the sound as it matures. “So thank you for this harp. It shows that all the research you have done on autoharp acoustics and construction really pays off. I also appreciate our conversations back and forth in deciding all the details that went into this harp. I've learned a lot. “Once again I must rave about the sound of this harp. The strings in the upper register don't so much ring as peal, if there's a difference. And note separation across the string bed is clear and resonant. All keys sound good and the minor chords have just the air of mystery I was looking for. Thanks again for building this wonderful autoharp.” -Bryan

Can

First

I

everyone

gets

to

see

and

it.

You

can

look

touch.

Should

I

When

I

up

tonight,

I

felt

When
