The Jolie Hybrid Harp
This Musicmakers Jolie Hybrid Harp is the holy grail of harp-making. This lever harp weighs about 13 pounds, produces a full, rich tone, and withstands the tension of all the strings.
Until now, this seemed like an unachievable goal. In recent years we have seen the introduction of carbon fiber harps and have been very impressed! We are amazed at how light they can be and how much abuse they can withstand. But working with wood is where our heart is. The depth of beauty and the warm, inviting tone of wood lever harps are qualities we were not willing to give up. So we began to consider how we might combine the ultra light weight and durability of carbon fiber with the natural beauty and depth of tone you get with wood.
Enter the Jolie Hybrid - a carbon fiber and wood hybrid lever harp.

Lightweight & Strong
Carbon Fiber and Wood Lever Harp
We start with beautiful ribbon mahogany for the back, sides, neck, and pillar. We remove 80% of the material and then reinforce each piece with carbon fiber.
Stronger Than Before
We've significantly reduced the weight while making each piece stronger than it was to begin with.
A Mere 13 Pounds
Our carbon fiber hybrid Jolie weighs in at 13 pounds. Wow! Thats about the weight of well fed house cat!
"Perfect for my aging back, making it a snap to put in and take out of my car." Janice M.

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.
