Specifications
for Denwar Harps
Timbers used
All Professional & Student harps are made
from "Aussie" timber, felled and lost or
rejected intimes passed....some left lying in
the forest for over 100 years, 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 Camphor Laural with 5%
added for Silky Oak & 10% added for
Australian Red Cedar,               .
(not to be confused with Western red
cedar) This timber is used because of
it's fine qualities:
Very strong
 Very lightweight
     Very attractive color
   and graining.
Even though this timber is scarce
(It has been used for making
superior furniture for over 200 years.
DENWAR HARPS are known as
much for the timber used, as they are
for their workmanship and sound
reproduction......so we are going to
continue to use  Aust Red Cedar and
Silky Oak for as long as we can obtain it.

Soundboards are hardwood laminate
unless otherwise stated, this is
very stable and produces a good sound.
If you require a solid timber S/B..... please
inquire.
