Professional Model – Prices From 6000.00 Euro

Unfortunately, due to an increase in the cost of materials, I have to pass this on to my prices for the first time in four years. I held off as long as possible but the time has come to be realistic about next year and beyond . Current orders extend to November 2024. The time dedicated to each instrument and the quality of the hardware can’t be compromised to get first-class results at a lower price. Thank you for inquiring about my work.

Santos rosewood in sycamore inlay work.The carving is based on an orchid .The laminated shoulder is done with walnut and the boxwood bridge strip is edged with hand cut recycled rosewood veneer taken  from an old piano. Also featured a new floral design for the next harp in cherry wood.Based on a bell flower.

Beautiful Irish  sycamore from county Offaly.Note the fiddle back grain .

As on all my harps the string starts on the soundboard through a rosewood or ebony “washer” which I make myself.The grain in the washer runs across the bridge strip so the string won’t cut into the wood and muffle the sound.This part is mostly done on other harps with metal or plastic washers that can affect the sound badly.
