A LOVELY PARAGUAYAN HARP - $1030 (Menlo Park)
/// Light-weight Lovely Paraguayan Harp /// - $1030 (menlo park)
/// A LOVELY PARAGUAYAN HARP ///
The Paraguayan harp is the national instrument of the country of Paraguay. This instrument has several unique features that make it an outstanding harp. The harp neck is designed so that the strings come from the center of the neck, eliminating the tendency for the neck to roll over to the left because of string tension as in an Irish harp.
Since the pillar and soundbox do not need to be extra strong to accommodate the "left-sidedness" of the tension, the whole instrument weighs far less than a comparable Irish harp. The Paraguayan harp weighs approximately 16 pounds with no sharping levers.
The harp is lightly strung, and has the largest bass volume of all harps played today. The upper register is very bright. There are 38 strings. Several strings have been recently restrung!
If you are unfamiliar with this harp, just listen to any recording by Alfredo Ortiz, the Maestro of this instrument. (Adapted from the Sandpiper Instruments website)
The asking price is $1,030. Open to reasonable offers.
