Gothic Harps

I make them according to historical or modern ways of construction. The modern way shows a crossgrained soundboard, frame construction and relativly strong tension of strings. Historial gothic harps have got a body carved out of the solid wood and due to vertical the grain of the soundboard less tension of the strings.
