Fine Wood Veneers
Each harp comes with one of these soundboard veneers on its core. Depending on the harp model, the core material is either made of spruce or baltic birch for the nylon harps and usually cherry hardwood for the wire harps.
No matter what the inside of the soundboard is made out of, each harp has a hardwood veneer that we hand cut. When we cut the boards to make your harp, we use the best wood we can find and use this same wood for your soundboard veneer so it will match completely, all around the harp.
The harps that are shown here have matching soundboards, many people opt for the contrasting maple soundboards which you can see more of when looking at the specific harp models.
Cherry produces a full soft, rich tone. It is one of our lightest woods in weight and has a reddish color.
Maple tends to be louder with a longer sustain. It is medium weight and usually has some figure in the wood.
Bubinga has a full ethereal sound that develops over time. It is the heaviest in weight and has a reddish brown color.
Walnut produces a warm, rich tone. It is one of our lightest woods in weight and has a lovely dark, rich color.
