In 2018 the Chord Harp sold for $319 as a kit and $549 Finished.
The chord harp was an idea from the mind of Jerry Brown. Inspired by a visit from chambered nautilus that came to him in a dream, Jerry saw how he could created an instrument with four chord clusters. The strings would cross each other by the means of a stepped bridge.
Four clusters of five strings each were tuned to the following chords: D7 – G – C – F. This configuration gave the player a I, IV, and V chord in two different keys. That combination of chords is used for hundreds of folk songs and the two different keys gave the singer the option of picking a key that suited his/her voice best.
