This is a blog where I will share about the custom harp projects that I have been working on lately, and some that are already finished! :-) I build custom harps in all sizes and styles possible, from cross double and single strung harps with from 10 to 42 strings, to electric-acoustic and midi harps. I also build laser beam harps, with red and green lasers instead of strings!

New Design for Framed Laser Beam Light Harp, all Stainless Steel construction.
I have designed a new framed Laser Harp model that will not look "Framed", with
the harp being all stainless steel in construction. The design has a
waist high stainless steel control console, that is only four inches
deep, by fourteen inches wide, by 5 feet long. The control console is
supported by stainless support... pieces that angle out as they stretch up
to 10 feet above the players head, until they terminate at 12 feet wide
at the top, where a connecting pieces ties them together.
The 8 green lasers shine up in a fan shape from the control console, to terminate at 8 optic sensors on the top piece. The lasers are triggered by breaking the beams at any point in their transit to the optic sensors, triggering any type of media, audio or visual , in loops, sequences, single note/ sound, up to 70 times per second. The fully ... See More programmable software is installed in the compact lap top computer that is installed in the control console( removable for transport). The software includes a wave file editor and a built-in either. The lasers can also be reflected to additional optic sensors that are mounted in the control console surface, using the analog effect of changing voltage produced by different levels of laser light reflected to these sensors. This analog aspect of the software can produce variable pitch and volume change in the already triggered sounds and sequences produced by breaking the beams that shine at the top set of sensors. There is in addition a set of four control buttons or pedals that can be triggered to change the programing of all 16 sensor channels to an entirely new set of music/ sounds/ notes/ video and still imagery. Visual imagery and audio sounds can be triggered at the same time in all channels.
This Laser Harp model is available by custom order, for $18,000 .
