Welcome to Heartland Harps & Music! We are a small, but rapidly growing, company in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina. We’ve been handcrafting harps since 1984. For the first 25 years, we built wood harps in a variety of models. Then in 2009, we fused the art of harp-building with cutting edge technology and introduced the first harp model fabricated completely from carbon fiber—creating a harp that is lightweight, impermeable to the elements, and virtually indestructible. To date we’ve built nearly 1,000 carbon fiber harps for delighted customers all over the world. We currently offer five models of harps – including both lever and pedal harps. And, coming soon… a 25-string lap harp that’s ideal for travel or therapy.

Just a few years ago, this was a harpist’s dream, but it wasn’t reality… until now…

Introducing Superlight Harps™, the only all-carbon fiber harps in the world, made only by Heartland Harps & Music.

Here’s what just one harpist has to say:

“ I just want to tell you again how perfect this harp is. The sound is exactly what I wanted. It’s amazing how it can be both transparent and haunting at one and the same time. You have pulled off something really really special with this harp. The more I play it (and I’m playing it a lot) the more I am amazed at it.”

Kye Nelson

But can a 10 pound ‘plastic’ harp sound any good? Superlight Harps™ aren’t plastic, they’re high-tech carbon fiber – the same thing that’s been used for top-end guitars and cellos for years. In the last two years, over 500 Superlight Harps™ have found new homes with VERY happy harpists.
