“I can’t go to bed, this harp is so great! I can't stop playing it. . .

I am impressed with how even the sound is from top to bottom. . . .

I can really fly on it.”

"My new Wenge Kemper harp has a rich, warm sound and is a joy to play. 

I would never have believed that such a lovely instrument would be

available at a price I could afford." 

-Penny Smith, on Maryland’s Eastern Shore




"I truly enjoy playing music on my Kemper harp.   The tone of the harp has a bright upper register and big warm bass sound.   Celtic music sounds particularly good on the Kemper harp.  His craftsmanship is excellent and the details in the harps are beautiful.  Rick is very personable and his customer service is unsurpassed.  It is a pleasure to do business with him.."
