The Delight is our largest SuperLight harp!
SEE OUR NEW VIDEO OF THE DELIGHT BELOW!!
The Delight was our first ever light-weight, full size carbon fiber lever harp, fashioned after our popular DragonHeart line. The Delight has 38 strings (going down to A 3 octaves below Middle C), concert spacing and tension, and a tone that you have to hear to believe. And, most importantly, it only weighs 10.6 POUNDS! Yes, it weighs about the same as many lap harps, but it’s full sized in every way. People tend to lift it about 2 feet off the floor when they only intended to raise it a few inches – it’s truly a super lightweight harp.
The Delight comes standard with full Truitt sharping levers, gold-plated hardware and a great carrying case. The standard Delight comes with a clear finish showing the carbon fabric underneath. The fabric is specifically cut and laid out to be seen and admired. We can also create your Delight in any color you wish, all with a deep, luxurious finish, and gold accents are available as well. The Delight is not only a spectacularly pretty harp, it’s a … Delight to carry anywhere. Also, because the carbon fiber material doesn’t shrink and swell as wood does, the Delight holds it tune much better than most harps.
Gold-plated hardware, standard on the Delight, offers several advantages. While it doesn’t affect the sound or function of the harp, it really dresses it up. The Truitt sharping levers are already gold plated, but on the Delight, the tuning pins, the bridge pins, the soundboard eyelets for the strings and even the screws that hold the sharping levers on the harp are all beautifully gold plated. The other benefit of the gold plating is that your harp will always look new and fresh, because none of the metal parts will tarnish, rust or discolor in any way. So this is a great way to add that little touch of extra class to your Delight!

We offer the Korg CA30 tuner, which works well with the harp. We supply it with a small clip pickup, so you can tune your harp even in a noisy room. Each string will be registered, along with an indication of how ‘in tune’ it is. Simply turn the tuning pin, using your tuning wrench, until the Korg CA30 tuner indicates that your harp is in tune.
Korg CA30 Electronic tuner w/pickup: $35
We can install a Fishman single-transducer pickup in your harp. This will enable you to plug your harp into most amplifiers or amplification systems without using a microphone. Being amplified couldn’t be easier!
Fishman pickup installed: $100
