A Raven 36 in Wenge with a curly maple Soundboard.
In addition to the standard models, I build custom harps for players that have a very specific idea of what they want - and can’t find in the marketplace. Custom building allows the player to specify the sound, tension, spacing, range, style and levers you want. The downside is the wait – my current waiting list for custom harps is about eight months.
If you are interested in a custom harp, Write to have me add you to the waiting list. When your name comes up, I will contact you and we will work out the specifics you would like on your harp. Then you make a deposit for the half the materials. It takes me about 10 weeks to complete a fancy five octave stave back harp.
That five octave round back with fancy trimmings and full levers and fluorocarbon strings will cost about $5,500. A simpler 32 string square back may be as low as $4,400. I will happily provide a cost estimate when I put you on the waiting list, and then a firm quote when I take your deposit.
Below are some examples of my work –
