36 string Celtic harp

This new 36 string harp is a tall graceful harp in the style of the Celtic folk harps.

It is 1.55 meters high and has a round back and curved pillar and sits on an attractive base which has four turned feet.
The range is from A 2 1/2 octaves below middle C up to A 2 1/2 octaves above middle C.

The bass is full and warm, the mid-range is round and sweet, and the treble range sparkles. The six lower bass strings can be either wound metal or nylon/nylon wrap. The metal bass strings give a bit more bite and more sustain.

In common with other Welharps harps it has the split/divided Paraguayan style neck with guitar machine heads.
