Saffron 22– String Lever Harp

The Saffron 22 string Harp has almost the same technical specification as the  Aster 22  harp but  the difference is in the  design of the Harmonic Curve and the Pillar. The result is classical styling with a crisp, mellow tone that is rarely encountered on a harp of this size. It is a round backed nylon strung harp where all the strings are fitted with reliable semi-tone levers giving a note range from A6 to A3. It is sturdily constructed from Beech or Ash and  comes with four  legs to give a more comfortable playing position. The legs are removable for increased portability.  At only 7kg and supplied with a padded travel bag and a choice of finishes and decorations, the Saffron 22 strings is an excellent and affordable small harp.

 

Specifications 22 String Lever Harp

 

Strings Type:

  • Nylon Monofilament (1-22)

Sharping Levers:

Flip up accurate and adjustable Steel Sharping Levers with colour coding (red for C and blue for F) as standard. These levers have good functionality using two points of contact for the lower and mid-range strings. This allows for the best string tonality when engaged. The base is made of steel for strength and rigidity, and the plastic handles are coloured for easy identification. The resting pins on the levers are adjustable for regulation and to accommodate different string sizes and harp designs. Excellent levers at a very competitive price. This is an amazing contribution by Mikel Celtic Instruments to the Harp World.

Available Finishes:

Natural, Black, Green, White and Blue. These are standard colours at a standard price. We shall be happy to make custom colours on your demand. Custom colour charges may apply. Whatever colour you desire is possible.

Carry Bags: 

The Deluxe Carry bag is made from high quality Cordura. With 10 mm hard foam padding interior and 3 mm soft foam padded exterior. The Pocket is designed to carry booklets, books, harp accessories, detachable legs and more. Bags are intentionally made durable to cope with the busy use and transport the instrument might expect in its lifetime.

Soundboard Decoration:

This is an optional feature available on the harp’s soundboard, which is usually the same colour as the Harp. Some customers demand Contrast Colour such as black colour harp and golden decoration on the soundboard. It is possible. Custom colour charges may apply.

Detachable Legs:

Detachable Legs are an optional but recommended feature with the 22 strings harp. They raise the harp about 30 cm from ground, which helps some users to play more easily while sitting on a chair. The legs are fully detachable with feet. The Carry bag has a special place for each leg to be kept safely inside the pocket.
