Dusty Strings Harps - Woods

Dusty Strings harps are made of carefully selected hardwoods. For long-lasting beauty and protection, each instrument is finished with multiple applications of clear lacquer. The FH Series of harps feature solid hardwood construction with top-of-the-line detailing and wood selection. Soundboards are meticulously constructed of mahogany or mahogany and spruce overlaid with maple or cherry veneer, bordered with a decorative purfling and edge-binding. The FH harps are available in five choices of woods.

Walnut Wood
