Simon Capp Early Harps

Based on an anonymous instrument in the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge, England, and also on a harp by John Richards in the Welsh National Folk Museum, this instrument has an eighteenth-century type long-grain pine soundboard as distinct from the cross-grain pedal harp-type soundboards of the more familiar nineteenth century examples.

Consequently, it has a sweet, slightly nasal treble and a clear, warm, bass ideally suited to the demands of the eighteenth century English and Welsh repertoire.


It is tuned at A415.
