| Timbers used
All harps are made from "Aussie"
timber, felled and lost or rejected in
times passed....some left lying in the
forest for over 100years, yet revealing
supurb mature timber under a crust
of rotted sapwood......
No timbers used from standing
trees or Asian imports.....
All prices quoted will be for
harps made in Silky Oak.
There will be a charge of 15% (on basic harp

continue to use Aust Red Cedar and
Silky Oak for as long as we can obtain it.

very stable and produces a good sound.
