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!

These are photos of a re-created 7 string Viking Lyre I created for a client several years ago, using Oregon Myrtle wood and Engleman Spruce. There are inset amber 'eyes', in the stylized dragon heads carved on the top of the Lyre. The string tension is quite light, with three different string gauges used.
