Partially Levered Morwenna Rose 105


Ex-hire 27 string Morwenna Rose harp in excellent condition.

Out of stock


This is an ex-hire 27-string Morwenna Rose harp. It is in excellent condition with very few signs of previous use, such as minor scratches and scuffs.

This particular one was very well looked after by a local student of ours.

Made in Spring 2017 in our workshop in Woodchester, this partially levered harp is a rare “mark 1.5”, with a straight but unveneered pillar. This one is especially rare as is has a solid sycamore timber pillar support, which is even better at the job of keeping the pillar straight than the plywood pillar we went on to use (it was cheaper to use plywood, and strong enough to do the job. Once we were putting veneer on it the looks didn’t matter).

We have serviced it by regulating the levers and giving it a clean; it didn’t need much as it has clearly been well looked after. It comes with our standard 3 year warranty on second hand harps.

It has a bright, lively tone and a beautiful gloss finish, and it is the result of over 4 years and 100 harps worth of experience (this was our 105th).

It would have been £795 new.

The soundboard is made from aircraft birch plywood, so called because of its use in aeroplanes due to its very high strength-to-weight ratio. This means that 3mm of wood can bear a high string tension, which in turn makes the notes ring beautifully. A thinner soundboard resonates better with the strings.
