Special Pommele Sapele

We have a single set of parts for an FH36S in rare, highly-figured pommele sapele, just waiting to be turned into a harp. The harp will have a sweet and smooth tone and an unbelievably gorgeous dappled red-gold appearance, and you get to decide what levers and other options you want!

 

Conferences

No more conferences this year, but you can see some photos of the recent Southeastern Harp Conference on our blog and start planning for next year!

Welcome to Dusty Strings!

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!
