Dusty Strings lever harp neck made of curly maple


Welcome to the world of Dusty Strings harps! We are builders of lever harps (also commonly called folk or Celtic harps) and have been lovingly handcrafting our instruments in Seattle, WA since 1979. We invite you to browse to your heart's content, and if at any point you would prefer to talk to a person, feel free to give us a call! We won't bombard you with pushy sales tactics, and we would love to answer any questions you might have (or help you figure out what questions to ask). 

Featured Harp

FH34 in figured cherry with abalone inlay around the soundboard

A much lighter-weight wood than bubinga, cherry seems to capture the same lush, bassy depth, but with an ever so soft warm blanket laid over the top to take the edge off. If you love bubinga, but find it to be just a little too... something... then we're willing to bet cherry is your ideal match! The rich tone of this harp seems to pair perfectly with the ripples of the figured cherry wood, and the hint of sparkle around the soundboard will mirror the sparkle in your eye when you sit down to play it!

This harp has 34 strings and includes abalone inlay around the soundboard, a full set of Camac levers, and a deluxe padded case. More details about the FH34 model can be found here, and you're welcome to contact us if you have questions about or are interested in this particular harp.
