Vivid Color Harps
When Jacob's daughter, Cheyenne, built her own harp, she decided she wanted to stain it purple. So that is exactly what she did and the results were stunning! We brought her purple harp to a harp conference and wrote an article about it for the Folk Harp Journal. We had so much positive feedback and interest in that purple harp that we decided to offer a Vivid Color Stain as an option for our harps
Making Vivid 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 pattens. 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.
We offer five vivid color options:
- Angelite Blue
- Emerald Isle Green
- Golden Fawn
- Galaxy Purple
- Tiger's Eye Bronze
You can order our Jolie, Jolie Hybrid, Voyageur, and Cheyenne Harps in any one of these options.
