FH26 Double-Strung

Our FH harps offer you a choice of several fine hardwoods, and for most people, the decision is based on a combination of factors. The differences in price are related to the availability and cost of each wood type as well as the ease or difficulty of working with it. Our harps show the natural color and grain of the wood through a clear lacquer finish without any stain, and the visual aesthetic of the wood is often an important consideration. Also, each species of wood lends a subtly different character to the harp's tone, which is a difficult and amorphous thing to try to describe in words. Maple and bubinga are simplest to distinguish. Figured cherry seems to blend the tonal characteristics of the other woods, making them more difficult to differentiate verbally. We've done our best to give you a general overview of the tonal qualities of the different woods:

Maple—crisp and clean, very bright, focused and articulate
Bubinga—deep and full bodied, with an authoritative bass and bell-like treble and mid range
Figured Cherry—both deep and bright, with a strong but very smooth voice

  • 26 strings per side, 3½ octaves
  • All solid wood construction in choice of 3 woods
  • Set of four matching legs
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Deluxe case

With two banks of parallel strings, each with a full set of sharping levers, this double-strung harp offers a new level of creativity. The FH26 double-strung is available in maple, figured cherry and bubinga woods.

With the double-strung setup, each hand has free access to the harp's entire range, permitting arrangements that would typically require a much larger harp. Different lever settings, intricate arrangements, complex harmonies and echo effects add to the potential techniques this harp can inspire.

Maple: $3715

Figured cherry or bubinga*: $3965

Includes CD26 case, custom tuning wrench and leg set.

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