ACCESSORIES & SERVICE

SERVICE
Harps, like anything else, need a little care from time to time - anything from replacing an intricately carved harp arm or re-gilding, to a simple re-tune.  We can do whatever it takes to restore your harp to ‘good as new’ including replicating it if it’s in such condition that it cannot be repaired.

GIG BAGS
You can find harp carying (gig bags) bags on line from many manufacturers and for that reason, we do not stock them.  There are simply too many choices regarding material, pockets, handles and straps, and zippers.  We do recommend water repellant, padded lining, metal zippers, and pocket(s) big enough for sheet music, tuning wrench, and a spare string set.

STRINGS
Spare sets of strings are offered for each of our harps in the 'Options' section of your shopping cart.  We are an authorized Vanderbilt Music Company distributor and can fit your harp with top of the line gut, nylon, steel, flurocarbon strings, or a mix of these.  Usually, harps are designed with consideration for strings so changing string type, sizes, or tension should be done with great care.  We can provide whatever strings you need or verify what strings are actually supposed to go on your harp.

LEVERS
We currently install Camac or REES Levers on our Stock Harps and can supply Universal  Tifi , Truitt , Loveland ,   Jordan or any other lever you request.  See Levers .

TORNAVOZ
Antonio de Torres Jurado was a Spanish guitarist and luthier in the mid-1800's who developed a Tornavoz ring.  This is a 'sound shaping' device that can be sized, shaped, and installed, to get the best sound from your harp. Tornavoz rings are sized as a function of resonator volume, and frequencies, and are specific for each individual harp.   They just make a small harp sound really big without losing the bass. And, they make a big harp sound even better!  

​Here're my thoughts:  if you run water through a hose with an open end, it sprays out all over the place without form;  if you put a nozzle on the hose, you can control the shape of the escaping water.  Well, sound waves, water waves, it's all fluid flow so it seems we have a rabbit to chase!  That means that we can actually calculate the volume required for a harp resonator and the size of the sound hole(s) and the diameter and length of the rings needed to form the sound into a proper wave. Much like blowing across the mouth of a soda bottle. That should hold the sound together resulting in more clarity.  

AMPLIFICATION
We offer high-end pickup systems using K & K Sound Systems transducer pickups.  We install multiple head Pure Piano transducer pickup systems with a Behringer Ultracoustic AT108 - 15-watt 8" Acoustic Instrument Amp.  Each of the transducer heads is tailor-made to fit its defined frequency range.  I don't believe there's a better system out there.

TRANSPORT
You may find that a Travel Bag and/or Wheels will help you transport your harp from gig to gig.   We offer padded travel bags and wheels sized for your harp.  There are so many styles of gig bags available, and they're such a personal thing, that we don't stock them.

LIGHTING
See your strings and music when ambient lighting is low.  These LED lights are installed under the harp neck and provide a beautiful backdrop and  show off your harp whether you're playing or not.  They are battery operated and are not hot.  A/C adapter, remote  control, and dimmer are available.
