FH26 Double-Strung

Overview

  • 26 strings per side, 3½ octaves
  • Solid wood construction in choice of 3 woods
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Set of four removable legs included
  • Deluxe case included

With two banks of parallel strings, each with a full set of sharping levers, this double-strung harp offers a new level of creativity. The FH26 double-strung is available in maple, figured cherry and bubinga woods.

With the double-strung setup, each hand has free access to the harp's entire range, permitting arrangements that would typically require a much larger harp. Different lever settings, intricate arrangements, complex harmonies and echo effects add to the potential techniques this harp can inspire.

Includes CD26 case, custom tuning wrench, and leg set.

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.
