Serrana 34 Lever Harp
A Latin American style harp with a worldwide appeal.
The Serrana 34 lever harp by Dusty Strings is based on their much-loved Ravenna 34.The Serrana 34 features a new, strong and lightweight carbon fibre pillar, along with the narrow string spacing and light string tension traditional in Latin American harps. It has a big and responsive sound across its 34-string range, yet weighs only 8.8kg. Two built-in extendable legs increase in handy 5cm increments.
Mariachi is a form of folk music from Mexico that has become popular with school music programmes in the USA. Dusty Strings intended that the Serrana 34 would provide a reliable, affordable Mariachi harp for these programmes. However, soon Celtic harp players began to express an interest in the prototypes and Dusty Strings realised that the Serrana 34 had a much wider appeal than the Mariachi style harp they had originally conceived. Harpists were excited to know of a full-voiced harp that would be ideal for young students with small hands and for established players who prefer light string tension with narrow string spacing.

Serrana 34 - Extra OptionsInternal Mounted Pick Up System
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. As of August 2012 all new Ravenna harps come with a pre-drilled, capped hole on the lower back of the harp, making it simple to retro-fit a pick-up, if desired.
