Harp building workshop
Work in Progress
In my harp workshop I can offer you a full service for your harp.
This ranges from the regulation to the repair, restoration, maintenance of your harp and does not end with the individual consultation.
Whether it is single action pedal harp, double action pedal harp, Tyrolean harp or Irish harp - all harp types and manufacturers are welcome in my workshop.
Our selected woods, seasoned for many years, often have a particularly vivid and decorative grain.
We build in maple, cherry, walnut, elm, ash for example.
In our workshop you have the possibility to choose the woods from which your instrument can be built.
The harps shown in our gallery are some designs and can be transferred to any other model.
The harp models are built in three different types of construction.
- Box construction - A simple construction method in solid design
- Half-round construction - Construction glued from single solid wood pieces
- Layered construction - More complex, classical construction method which is also used in modern concert harp building.
In the end, the wooden surfaces are sealed with high-quality oils, waxes, shellac polishes or modern synthetic resin varnishes.
The string spacing and the string tension correspond to the usual standard. Thus, an easy change from hook harp to pedal harp is possible at any time.
Other string tensions can be considered on request.
As string material I use gut, nylon, carbon or metal strings. Varying string tensions are possible at any time.
