Description

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

Made in December 2016 in our old workshop in Nailsworth, the shape at the end of the neck/top of the pillar was meant to look like they had been made separately and glued together by a self-conscious harp maker who thought that “that’s what harps are meant to look like”.

We changed the design just after this.

Only 4 of these ones were made, we had improved the sound of the harp by making the soundbox lighter, but we hadn’t yet lengthened the strings. We also experimented with putting the soundboard support strip on the outside of the soundbox.

There is a chip in the veneer on the side of the soundbox.

Would have been £585 new.

It has a bright, lively tone and a beautiful gloss finish.

The soundboard is made from aircraft birch plywood, so called because of it’s use in aeroplanes due to it’s 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.
