Styled after Italian triple strung harps of the seventeenth century, this is a compact harp with a range of four plus octaves. It features either a vertical-grain sycamore or cross-grain spruce sound board fitted to a staved soundbox made from 5 hardwood staves. The harp can be fitted with either five or seven chromatic notes in the middle row. The vertical-grain soundboard is more historically accurate, while a modern cross-grain spruce sound board can be fitted for those that would like a slightly more modern sounding instrument. Also too this harp can be fitted with a short octave bass for those that wish to have an extended bass range down to the 6th Octave G.
