The harps in Dusty Strings' Ravenna line are perfect for the discriminating and budget-minded beginner, traveler, teacher, or student. They fill many needs with their affordability, reliability, portability, and most importantly their rich and satisfying sound. The innovative design and construction techniques (patent pending) of the Ravennas allow Dusty Strings to incorporate more features than are usually found in harps in this price range. The stave-back soundbox and the unique drop-down playing leg make for great playing comfort and versatility. These harps are crafted with a solid ash neck and pillar, laminated European birch soundbox with ash-grained vinyl veneer, and a laminated European birch soundboard. Dusty Strings' characteristic bright, full sound; tuning stability; even tension across the strings; and meticulous craftsmanship make the Ravenna harps a great value.
