Updates: We have just migrated our website and have some details to clean up, so please pardon the mess! We’d also like to ask for your patience if we are slower than usual to respond to orders, emails, and phone calls. We are still dealing with the challenges of operating a manufacturing business safely during COVID, and we are working with limited staff capacity. Thank you!

Dusty Strings article in the Harp Column

We'd like to thank the Harp Column for featuring Dusty Strings in the most recent issue of their magazine. Ray and Sue (Dusty owners and founders) were honored to be asked for an interview and to be pictured on the front cover of this illustrious publication!

Have you ever wondered where the name "Dusty Strings" came from? Or what it's like to run a business with your spouse? Or what's involved in designing a new harp model? With 35 years of experience and 35,000 musical instruments out there in the world, Ray and Sue have lots to say about the rewards and challenges of starting their own business, the people who have helped Dusty Strings get to this point, and how things have changed over the years. They attribute the success of the company to caring about the details and honoring their relationships with colleagues, customers and co-workers. And what would they say is the most rewarding part? "Just people, really. Hearing their stories."

There are some more photos and a sneak peek into the article on the Harp Column's website. If you're not a subscriber already, you can sign up to start receiving the print edition or browsing digital versions of past issues.
