Several of us are away at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival, and we may not be able to respond to emails and phone calls as quickly as usual. Thank you for your patience!

Black Soundboard

Black soundboard and contrasting light maple bridges, binding, and sides
No items found.

For a dramatic contrast to the strings and rails, we can finish the soundboard in a semi-gloss black lacquer instead of the standard clear lacquer. It is an opaque black, but does not create a smooth, pore-filled surface, so the texture and grain of the wood is still visible. Since the process of applying black lacquer requires the instrument to have edge binding, the binding and purfling option must also be ordered for the D45 and PD40. The Chromatic Series instruments include binding as a standard feature.

While we don't offer this exact option on the Overture, that model can be ordered with full black lacquer.

Price: $150 (Available for models D45, PD40, D300, D500, D550, D570, D650 & D670. For D45 & PD40, binding must also be ordered.)
