Testimonials

"This is my 22nd harp! Bubinga -- this harp is absolutely amazing for its sound quality in relationship to its size."

-Sue Carole DeVale (Glendale, California)

 

"We are very happy with the craftsmanship, tone quality, and portability of this instrument."

-Art Leiby (Bellmawr, New Jersey)

"My deepest and heartfelt thanks to all of you for creating one of the most beautiful harps (in both sight and sound) that I've ever played. For those times that I can't play my gorgeous Dusty 36S, this 26 gives me everything I could hope for in a smaller harp. I was blown away by the big, rich voice — and even more amazed hearing the new internal pickups when amplified. Even though I would lean toward playing a large 36 for a main stage performance, I had a feeling that this harp could hold its own even for that type of event — and I was right! After [I play], the sound guys are always first to rush up and find out what I’m using to get such great sound. These guys are the ones that know and give the system the highest of marks. Thank you again for making quality your priority. It shows in every aspect of my beautiful harp."
