The largest full-sized lever harp, the Delight weighs an amazing 11.2 pounds (5.4 kg). The harp delights with a deep, rich tone in the lower register, and features the unique design of a curved soundbox, making it an aesthetically-pleasing harp of all curves. This design also provides the advantages of rigidity, strength, and comfort. The ergonomically curved design allows the harp to be pulled straight into the player, providing extra room in the upper octave for the right hand, helping to maintain better playing technique.

Accessories

LED Lights

We offer the option of state-of-the-art LED lights installed under the neck on any of our carbon fiber lever harps. They’re specifically designed to shine down primarily on the strings and the players hands, rather than the whole area. The lights display the red, green, blue spectrum (and can also be set to white), with the ability to create 27 different shades. They also can be set to various levels of brightness, and 15 different transitional themes–including flashing, pulsing, strobing, etc. For more information and pictures visit our LED Lights page.

RGB LED Lights installed: $250

Amplification

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: $125

Electronic Tuner

We offer the Korg CA40 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 CA40 tuner indicates that your harp is in tune.
