Made by Rick Kemper in Silver Spring, MD (Rick also does our harp & hammered dulcimer repairs). A petite Irish harp with 34 strings, made of walnut. Full Camac sharping levers. 10 year warranty from Sligo Harps.
Top players from Ireland and Scotland seem to prefer small harps with lighter tension that can respond to the blazing ornamentation they put into their music. Luchair (Gaelic for joy or delight) incorporates the best features of these harps.
Because of its portability, playability and wonderful sound, this is currently Rick's favorite design. It does require a carefully profiled soundboard to get good volume from the lightly tensioned Savarez fluorocarbon strings.
34 Strings, Range 1760hz a” to 65 Hz C (19 strings above middle C, 14 Below).
Case is not included, but may be available (please inquire).
Currently, this harp is only available for local pickup at our store in Takoma Park, MD. Shipping is possible, but necessitates a custom-built crate and special freight shipping (expect over $500). Please inquire if you would like this harp shipped.
