22 string Parisian Harp Chelby Lever, Walnut. This is a stylishly designed harp, in solid Walnut with a spruce soundboard. Featuring the smooth, sleek look of the Chelby levers is reflected in their functionality. Compared to the standard Roosebeck harp levers, the Chelby levers are mechanically superior. The design allows the lever to engage the string from the side and limit the possibility of strings lifting off the bridge pin. Professional harpists appreciate the red and blue colored caps, which make it easy to locate the C- and F-string levers. The lever is attached to its base by a hex bolt. A synthetic washer is spaced between the lever and base, creating a smooth and controlled, lifting action that resists slipping once engaged. The base of each lever is mounted to the harp arm by two screws, should any adjustment be necessary. The bridge pins for the Chelby levers have also been improved; they can be adjusted, in or out, by simple turning with a hex wrench.
There are 22 DuPont Nylon strings. The simple straight lines of the pillar and softly curving lines of the arm are joined by the hand carved scroll. The carving is very organic giving the appearance of a fiddle headed fern. The effect is a strong bold design and a soft outline. The harp stands approximately 36.5 inches tall and weighs about 12 pounds. The strings range from C an octave below Middle C to High C.
Includes tuning tool and extra string set.
Will fit our Roosebeck Minstrel Harp TM Nylon Gig Bag (HMNC) sold separately.
Special note on strings
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings every 3-4 months. It is always a good idea to keep an extra set of stings to replace any that may break. You should always wipe down your strings with a clean dry cloth after use. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
