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.
The Ravenna 34 features nearly five octaves of the characteristic Dusty Strings sound - a warm, strong bass balanced by a bright, clear treble. It has a comfortable stave-back design and even string tension, allowing for precision playing. To keep the carrying size of the harp relatively compact and portable, the stand (if you choose to include one) is completely removable and comes apart to fit in one of the case pockets.
Although the Ravenna models are offered in different levers configuration, the models we currently offers have a full set of Loveland levers. (Figured)
