Harp Description:
The FH36 harps have the ideal range for a full-size lever harp: five octaves, starting and ending on C. The all-solid-wood construction brings an impressive amount of depth, power, and articulation to Dusty Strings' characteristic bright and clear sound.

While preserving the superb tone of its predecessor, the FH36B, the playing comfort on the FH36H has been increased with inset facets on the upper corners of the back. This "hybrid-stave" design provides the ergonomic benefits of the popular 36-string stave-back harp at a portion of the cost. The rectangular soundbox shape of the FH36H produces a very balanced, well-defined sound with great projection.

The FH36H includes a full set of Loveland sharping levers, a custom tuning wrench, and a high-quality case. This harp will delight both the professional and the player new to harping who is ready to make an investment in fine craftsmanship, musical potential, and sheer enjoyment for years to come.

• 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
