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!

Koa Soundboard Veneer

Curly golden koa veneer on the soundboard of a maple harp

Our standard maple harps have a thin, book-matched curly maple veneer over the soundboard, providing additional structural stability as well as a clean and appealing appearance. If you prefer your maple harp to have a contrasting soundboard, we offer koa as a special option. The warm sunset colors and curly figuration of the koa veneer add a dramatic touch and look gorgeous with the lighter tones of the maple. We also use koa for the base and capital to tie it all together.

Please note that we offer this option on maple harps only. It just doesn't look that good with the colors of our other wood choices!
