Allegro 26

Overview

  • 26 strings, 3½ octaves
  • Solid sapele neck, sides & back
  • Laminated Finland birch soundboard
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Four removable legs included

The 26-string Allegro is an ideal harp for any traveling harpist, beginner or teacher. Its 3½ octaves make it conveniently portable yet provide it with enough range and fullness of sound to please a fine-tuned ear. Combining solid wood sides and back with the simplicity of a laminate soundboard creates a clear and bright sound, blending the affordability of the Ravenna 26 with some of the solid wood tone and volume of the FH26.

Available fully levered with Loveland sharping levers, or with Camac levers as an option. A set of straight-tapered detachable legs (included) raises the harp about 11½ inches to a comfortable playing height. Sets of 5-inch or 8-inch legs are also available.

CE26 or CD26 case available separately.

Price includes set of four 12-inch legs and T-handle tuning wrench.

Please note that your harp will not look exactly like the photos you see here. Because wood is a natural material, and the color and grain vary from tree to tree, each harp we build is unique.

We make an effort to keep the photos up to date as far as general design goes, but videos could show slightly older versions.
