    Dusty Strings FH 36 H in Sapele

    High performance, professional quality lever harp for discerning players.

    With a full five octaves, starting and ending on C, the FH 36 H - Hybrid 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 FH 36 H has a rectangular soundbox, as opposed to the staved back shape of the FH 36 S. While preserving the superb tone of its popular predecessor, the FH 36 B, Dusty Strings have increased the playing comfort with facets on the upper corners of the back. This "hybrid-stave" design provides the ergonomic benefits of the popular 36-string FH 36 S Stave Back harp at a portion of the cost. The rectangular soundbox shape of the FH 36 H produces a very balanced, well-defined sound with great projection.

    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. Sapele is a golden, red-brown colour, often exhibiting a vivid, ribbon pattern to the grain. Its sound is robust, smooth and articulate.

    Internal Pick Up

    Using four carefully placed piezo pickup elements connected to a central rod, the Dusty Harp Pickup achieves a clean, focused, natural and lush sound. The pickup is discreetly mounted inside the soundbox of the harp, invisible to the audience. A single jack mounted on the back of the harp connects straight into a guitar amp or PA, making for true plug and play ease of use. The Internal Pick Up can be supplied pre-fitted, or can be retro-fitted by anyone with a basic grasp of DIY.
