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

SOLD - Allegro 26 in black with Camac levers

This elegant little harp sounds just like any other Allegro 26, with a big, clear voice that can fill a room, belying its small stature. Rather than our standard clear lacquer over the sapele wood, we've lacquered it in black, giving it a classic and timeless look. Since we don't use pore filler to smooth out the wood, you can still see the texture and grain of the solid wood when it catches the light, making this harp somewhat unique in the musical instrument world. With a full set of Camac levers and matching black legs included, this harp is ready for anything!

More details about the Allegro 26 model can be found here, and you're welcome to contact us if you have questions about or are interested in this particular harp. A full set of Camac sharping levers, four legs, and a tuning wrench are included. Case ($155-$245) is sold separately.
