    I think most harps, pedal or lever, have that graduated spacing.

    Some of the really traditional ones

    I had a wonderful Yule harp years ago, which I often wish I had back. I did not know Jack was making harps anymore! No website that I could find. Do you have any contact info for him?

    Thanks for posting this!

    I don’t think he has a website. He currently lives in Gardner, Colorado with his wife Barbara. The story I was told is that he moved here and brought a huge load of wood from his homeland so he could build harps.

    I am finally back on line, thank you for your patience.

    As the maker of the harps in question, I would like to put in my tuppence worth or two cents worth, depending on which side of the pond you are on. If I had been asked, and I do speak English as well as Scottish, richt weel, I would have said. The spacing of my harp strings is: top range 13 mm, mid range 14mm and bottom range 15 mm. A difference of 2 mm top to bottom can hardly be called exaggerated. No buyer of my harps has ever said this was a problem; this graduated spacing is a common practice

    By the way I did not bring a huge load of Scottish sycamore over with me. It will run out some time. The reason I do not have a website at present is that I am still finishing my house, garage and workshop that I have been building singlehandedly for the past nine years.

    If anybody wants to contact me, I am at You may call me at my home at 719-746-2061
