New lever harp maker

Post by daveboling »

I would like to announce that I am now making lever harps for sale. All the details, that I vould think of, are on the website at http://www.windriverharps.com. If you have any questions, you can post them to this thread, email me through the address on the website, or PM me through this site.
The design I am currently building is a 34 string harp, using fluorocarbon strings and Camac levers.

Tell us something.: Been a fluter, citternist, and uilleann piper; committed now to the way of the harp.

Oh, yeah: also a mod here, not a spammer. A matter of opinion, perhaps.

Looks like nice work Dave. Congratulations.

Would you by chance know of a maker in the Birmingham area by the name of Charles Ellis? I recently acquired a harp with this name (from Birmingham).

No, I've not run into any other harpmakers from this area, other than one who now lives in Canada who has done rather well.
