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!

FH26

Overview

  • Solid wood construction in choice of 5 woods
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers

This 26-string 3½-octave harp has a sweet and surprisingly strong voice, with the added resonance that comes from solid wood construction. The FH26 can serve as a full-voiced beginner's harp or a high-quality portable harp for the established player. A child can set the FH26 on the floor and play comfortably while seated in a small chair.

Our top-of-the-line 26-string harp, the FH26 features tasteful fine woodworking details such as a book-matched soundboard and binding and purfling around the edges. It comes complete with a deluxe CD26 case, a full set of Loveland sharping levers (Camac levers are optional), a custom tuning wrench and four beautifully shaped and removable matching legs.

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.
