Mikel 38 – String Lever Harps

The Mikel  38 — Mikel 38 is our offering as a floor harp. The Mikel 38 has been developed with the same attention to detail as our Celtic harp offerings.The rounded back is contoured to fit comfortably against the shoulder of both children and adults, allowing for comfortable hours of playing. The Mikel 38 celebrates a deep full range of tone which is enhanced by strings 31-38 which are steel core/copper wrapped strings. Strings 25-30 are nylon core nylon wrapped and the remaining 1-29 are nylon monofilament. All strings allow for an even more options as each string has our Mikel Celtic semi-tone lever. The Mikel 38 comes with its own padded carrying bag and weighing 13.1 kg this floor harp is manageable to transport. The 155 cm high by 79.5 cm size make this harp a great option for those wanting a greater range and depth of sound and than our other Celtic harps but still wish to have relative ease and portability not usually available in a floor harp. Our Mikel 38 is one of the most competitive quality levered floor harps on the market today.
