FH34

Overview

  • 34 strings, 4¾ octaves
  • Solid wood construction in choice of 5 woods
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Removable stand included
  • Deluxe case included

The FH34, our compact 4¾-octave, solid wood harp delivers brightness, depth and clarity, and has a great playing range. This harp will satisfy both the professional and the beginner with its resonance and power, and will please the most discerning eye with a tasteful display of fine woodworking.

This harp is the same overall size as its well-loved 32-string predecessor, but now goes down to the low C in the bass. For playing comfort, we've added facets on the upper corners of the back. This "hybrid staveback" design provides the ergonomic benefits of our popular 36-string staveback harp at a portion of the cost.

To keep the carrying size down, the FH34 includes an innovative stand that has removable feet and nestles into the base of the harp, attaching in seconds with the twist of a knob and without needing to turn the harp upside down. The harp can also sit on the ground without the stand for those who like a lower height.

Sapele: $4975

Maple: $5175

Walnut: $5255

Figured cherry or bubinga*: $5475

Includes CD34 case, stand and custom tuning wrench.

*Due to export regulations, bubinga is currently available within the U.S. only.
