You've been asking, and here it is! A soft leather holder that attaches to your harp and keeps your tuning wrench close at hand.
This is our new tool for hammered dulcimer players. It's an electronic tuner that mounts on a tuning pin, works great in noisy environments, and can stay in place while you play!
Boulevard Classic 34 - our new concert tension harp
Our newest harp model is strung in pedal gut and has a darker tone and a shorter sustain than the typical Dusty sound. It's great for playing classical repertoire and might also appeal to lever harpists who are looking for something less bright.
We are a small family-owned business in Seattle, Washington. Since 1979, we have been following our dream of building harps and hammered dulcimers and helping others to fulfill their dreams of making music. Over the years, we've earned a reputation for caring about our instruments and the people who play them, and this shows itself both in the quality of our craftsmanship and the quality of our customer interactions. If you have any questions about our instruments or if you don't even know what questions to ask, we encourage you to give us a call. There will always be a friendly voice on the other end of the telephone!
