Saffron 34- String Lever Harp

The Saffron 34 (along with the Aster 34) is the 2nd largest of the Mikel harps. With its wing tipped shape and rounded back it nestles on the body allowing you to enjoy producing a rich and even tone throughout the whole range from A6 down to C2. The strings are predominately nylon, but 29-32 are steel core nylon wrapped while 33-34 are steel core with copper wrapping. This, with full Mikel Celtic semi-tone levers, provides you with hours of enriched playing experience. Weighing a mere 10.8kg, the Saffron 34 is easily portable in the included cordura padded travel bag. The Saffron 34 is celebrated as an exceptional gift to the harp world particularly with its very approachable pricing.


Specifications Saffron 34 String Lever Harp

  • Nylon Monofilament (1-22),
  • Nylon core/nylon wrap (23-28),

Sharping Levers:  

Flip up accurate and adjustable Steel Sharping Levers with colour caps (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 lever base is made of steel for strength and rigidity, and the plastic handles have caps 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.

Soundboard Decoration: 

This is an optional feature available on the harp’s soundboard, which is usually the same colour as the Harp.

We find custom colours are often demanded on the 34 strings harp.
