      The Ballad Harp

      The Ballad Harp is our entry level harp and represents an amazing value.

      34 strings beginning on Low C provide as much range as many performance harps. We strung this harp with lower string tension and narrower spacing to be gentle on the hands of new harpists.

      Big enough to have a full bodied sound but small and light enough to be portable.

      What's Included:
      • Finished Ballad Harp with Camac Levers
      • Padded Gig Bag
      • Tuning Wrench
      • Free shipping in the Continental US
      • Owner's Manual

      Quilted Maple Soundboard Upgrade

      All our harp soundboards are made of aircraft birch, a 6-layer laminate that can withstand the tension of the harp strings without breaking. As an added visual appeal we can veneer a thin layer of beautiful quilted maple to the soundboard. It has a very slight affect on the tone making making the harp sound slightly warmer.

      Here's a couple of pictures of our Sonnet Lap Harp with the quilted maple upgrade.

      Vivid Color Harps

      We have always loved the natural grain of the woods we use and didn't want the color to hide that; we wanted the color to accentuate the grain. Maple, being a wood that is lighter in color, makes the perfect canvas for our vivid color stains.

      Maple is also available with some highly figured and beautiful grain patterns. We use select curly maple for the sides, neck, and pillar and offer a quilted maple veneer upgrade on the soundboard. The stain interacts with the figured grain patterns in exciting and surprising ways.

      I own a bigger, pricier, and heavier harp as my main instrument but this is so light and portable! It is comfortably easy to move around the house and transport in the car for music lessons and workshops. I heartily recommend it as a great beginner harp for adults and even children due to its good sound, comfortable petite size, wide range of strings, and the lightness of the strings on the fingers. This was a great purchase!

      Just got my Ballad it. Just my size (I'm short with small hands). Great sound...better than I had imagined. And...the weight is perfect, not like other harps I've had that weigh over 30-40 lbs or more. Great work, guys.
