The FH36S has what we feel is the ideal range for a full-size lever harp: five octaves, starting and ending on C. It surrounds the player with a round, full-bodied and well articulated sound, and its generous depth, power and responsiveness make playing seem effortless. It's a beautiful piece of fine woodworking and a satisfying investment for any harp enthusiast.
The sides and back of the soundbox consist of five facets of book-matched hardwood. This staveback design puts a flat facet, rather than a corner, against the player's shoulder, which some find more comfortable and which makes it easier to reach the lower strings. This soundbox shape, as opposed to the rectangular soundbox of the FH36H, gives a subtly rounder sound with a slightly fuller bass voice.
Includes deluxe CH36 case and custom 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.
All Dusty Strings harps and hammered dulcimers are made in our workshop in Seattle, WA, USA.
Note: the weight can vary by up to 2 pounds, depending on the density of the particular tree from which the harp was made.
