Restrictions on Bubinga Wood



Due to new CITES (
Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) regulations which came into effect on January 2nd 2017 there are certain restrictions on the importation and exportation of rosewood instruments. This includes bubinga wood, which is an option for Dusty Strings' FH 34 and FH 36 harps.

Dusty Strings are working with the responsible agencies in order to obtain the relevant permits they would require to export Bubinga harps, but this could take a few months.

If you have any queries about the availability of bubinga harps, please contact us directly on 01367 860493.

Harp Insurance Post-Brexit


UK Harpists - Have you checked that your harps are adequately insured post-Brexit?


Due to the falling pound, any harp that originated from abroad will be significantly more expensive to replace should the worst happen. We know of a harpist whose pedal harp was adequately insured for £12,000 before June - the same harp would now cost £16,000 to replace.

We suggest you find out how much your harp would currently cost and, if necessary, contact your insurance company to increase the replacement value.
