Ravenna 26 harp from Dusty Strings

Montreal, Quebec | Français | My Facebook page

Playing the harp is much easier and more enjoyable when you have an instrument that sounds good and functions well, and this is the driving concept behind the Ravenna models. To provide the best performance, the Ravenna is made with the same high-quality hardware and materials as the more expensive models. So, in order to meet their goal of affordability for the most budget-conscious harpists, Dusty Strings came up with an innovative construction technique that reduces the time they put into building them. They also priced separately all the accessories and options that are useful but not immediately essential, which is why the base price includes just the instrument, a tuning wrench, and the most commonly-used sharping levers. Each person can add exactly what they want or need to fit their budget.

Not just for beginners, the Ravenna 26 is a great harp for anyone who needs something small and portable. It has a remarkably full and bright sound for its size, and features our characteristic tuning stability and even string tension. The staveback soundbox provides an extra level of playing comfort.

Although the Ravenna models are offered in different levers configuration, the models we currently offers have a full set of Loveland levers. (Figured)

The Ravenna 26 is offered in 4 different colors:

  • Natural (In stock)
  • Black (In stock)
  • Green
  • Burgundy

The Ravenna 26 models currently available are Natural (figured) and black. They all have a full set of Loveland levers. Optional stand with 5", 8" or 12" legs is also available. The Ravenna 26 has a 2 year limited warranty.
