This is an authentic Gothic harp, designed by The Early Music Shop, U.K., from iconographical examples of the French Gothic harps. The body, arm and pillar are walnut and the soundboard is ply. There are 29 DuPont nylon strings, tuned F2-F6. Unlike modern harps, the Gothic harp is not strung from the back. Each string is held into the soundboard by tension and a small button topped peg. This is a non-standing lap harp with delicate lines. The graceful arm and pillar are accented with fluid curves. You will love this beauty. 40 inches long by 20 inches deep. The base of the resonator is 5.25 inches wide by 2.25 inches deep. A tuning tool and extra string set included.
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings every 3-4 months. It is always a good idea to keep an extra set of stings to replace any that may break. You should always wipe down your strings with a clean dry cloth after use. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
