Custom Lap Harp

Birch or Walnut Custom lap harps have more features than the standard models.

The Custom Lap Harp, like the Standard and Deluxe models, also has 2 octaves in the key of G. In addition, this model has one more string below the bottom G. This F# is not usually needed when playing only the melody but does get used for adding harmony at times. The starter set of music is written in the same ‘connect the dots’ style for the ultimate in easy playing for everyone regardless of music background. But, in addition, an easy to follow system of adding harmony notes is incorporated into the music. The melody notes are written in black; the harmony notes are in a lighter shade to differentiate them. You can choose to pluck only the melody notes with a pick or use your thumb and index finger or middle to pluck melody and harmony simultaneously where indicated.

Deluxe Lap Harp

A distinctive figure that is set into a recess made in the lap harp sets the deluxe apart from the standard and custom models.

The figures were originally designed from carvings by Pat Schwarz (Gracie) of Hendersonville, NC.  Now they are molded and hand stained.

The figures include a Mountain Man, Wood Spirit,  Eagle Spirit, and  Wolf Spirit. The only wood option is Baltic Birch. The sound on this model is slightly less resonant than the standard and custom models because the sound box does not have the traditional sound hole due to the figure placement.

All standard and custom lap harp music listed on the accessories page can be used on this lap harp. Carrying case sold separately.
