The FH34, Dusty Strings' compact 4¾ octave, all solid-wood harp delivers brightness, depth and clarity, and has a great playing range. This harp will satisfy both the professional and the beginner with its resonance and power, and will please the most discerning eye with a tasteful display of fine woodworking.
This harp is the same overall size as its well-loved 32-string predecessor, but now goes down to the low C in the bass. For playing comfort, Dusty Strings added facets on the upper corners of the back. This “hybrid-stave” design provides the ergonomic benefits of their popular 36-string stave back harp at a portion of the cost.
To keep the carrying size down, the FH34 includes an innovative stand that has removable feet and nestles into the base of the harp, attaching in seconds with the twist of a knob and without needing to turn the harp upside down. For those who like a lower height, the harp balances beautifully on the ground without the stand.
The FH34 includes a full set of Loveland sharping levers, a custom tuning wrench, and a high quality case. This harp delivers a superb combination of performance, range and portability in an elegant and easy-to-manage harp.
• Neck, pillar, back and sides: sapele, walnut, maple, bubinga or figured cherry. (Click here for photos and information about the woods.)
• Soundboard: solid Honduras mahogany in the mid and upper ranges and spruce in the bass, overlaid with book-matched figured hardwood veneer and bordered with purfling and edge binding.
• Full set of Loveland sharping levers on all strings
• Custom tuning key
• Soft-shell case
