Awhile back I allowed as how some nylon harp designs can be modified to wire by dropping the range (and possibly making a few simple tweaks). Well, I had the wood and the plans, so although had sworn to stop building could not resist doing one more (possibly to prove the point). This last one is a three octave brass strung (or bronze) from Music Makers pattern for their discontinued Sherpherd. Balfour and some others will recognize the profile.
It’s too bad IMHO that they discontinued it – not only was it a great little harp just as they designed, it’s also swell tweaked to a double, or wire, as here. If you’re interested in learning harp making basics beyond kit building (and have the tools) this is a cute little harp to start.
NOW I can sell the band saw:-)
