We are so grateful to Sunita Staneslow for being our harp case beta tester! We outfitted the case for her Camac Ulysse and sent her off with it from the Somerset harp festival in July. The harp has now been loaded and unloaded on seven different planes, and Sunita has been sending us regular updates, great observations and suggestions, and glowing words of praise.

It’s not every year you get to celebrate 40 years of building instruments, and when we realized that harp #20000 would coincide with our 40th anniversary, we got inspired to make it something really special.

Our newest harp model, the Serrana 34, is inspired by (but not limited to!) the mariachi tradition. With closer string spacing and lighter tension on a durable and affordable body, this harp is an ideal instrument for school mariachi programs or for any player looking for a harp that's responsive and easy on the hands.

Announcing our second new chromatic dulcimer model this year, the D570! If you were intrigued by the concept of the low bass notes being playable on both the right and the left, but if the D670 seemed a little big for you, the D570 could be just right...
