The 38-String Delight

The 38-String Delight

The Delight is our first-ever lightweight, full-size carbon fiber lever harp. 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… it only weighs 11.2 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 deluxe two-part carrying case. The standard Delight comes in an elegant Classic Black–up close you can see the carbon fiber weave below a shiny, clear finish. The carbon fiber 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!

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


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!

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.
