I now offer Traditional medieval harps based on The
Queen Mary 15th Century harp in the Museum in Edinburgh,
These will be hollowed and carved from solid timbers in the
historic way and held together by string tension alone.
My standard model is hollowed soundbox with Willow offered when
available(other timbers available). The pillar and neck
are of Sycamore or fruitwood with a spruce backboard.
The strings are as standard Brass but with Sterling Silver in
the Bass as supplied by Simon Chadwick.
Metalwork is brass, antique or natural finish.
