Boulevards are Shipping!

What does it take to launch a new harp model? A creative and resourceful research and development team, careful planning, a lot of testing and problem-solving, and a few measly little Very Important Details…

We did all the planning, we did all the testing, and over the past couple of months we’ve been steadily building and accumulating orders for our brand new gut-strung Boulevard Classic 34.

Here are all the new Boulevards excitedly waiting to be packed up and shipped:

So what’s missing? Well, if you look closely you’ll see a small round hole at the top of the pillar, which is supposed to be covered by a decorative plate. We decided that as a celebration of the new model (and as a way of easily distinguishing them from the similar-looking Ravennas), the Boulevards should have their own special plate. For a few weeks we have been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this last detail so that we can really finish these harps and send them out to their new homes!

Finally, a hopeful-looking box arrives… Could it be…? Yes it is!

Now all that’s left is to precisely position each plate and then we can box up and ship the harps.

Here's our proud R&D team!

Are any of these boxes heading your way?
