FH 36S - Staved Back
High performance, professional quality lever harp for discerning players.
With a full five octaves, starting and ending on C, the FH36 S - Staved Soundbox - has an ideal range for a full-size lever harp. The all-solid-wood construction brings a stunning amount of depth, power, responsiveness and articulation to the characteristic bright and clear Dusty Strings sound. These harps are truly an impressive piece of fine woodworking and a satisfying investment for any professional harp player or harp enthusiast.
The soundboard features solid Honduras mahogany in the mid and upper ranges and spruce in the bass, overlaid with book-matched figures hardwood veneer and bordered with purfling and edge binding.
The sides and back of the FH36 S - Staved Soundbox model consists of five facets of book-matched wood. This design puts a flat facet, rather than a corner, against the player's shoulder, which some find more comfortable and which makes it easier to reach the lower strings. This soundbox shape, as opposed to the rectangular soundbox of the FH36 B, gives an overall more rounded sound, with a slightly fuller bass voice.
The choice of wood makes a distinctive contribution to the overall sound of the harp. See each individual harp below for a description of the wood's particular properties.
