The 34-string Crescendo blends the streamlined construction of the Allegro with a larger playing range. With a laminated birch soundboard, solid Sapele on the rest of the harp and Loveland levers on every string, the Crescendo 34 has the clean, bright sound of the Allegro enhanced by the deeper, fuller effect of a larger harp.
The Crescendo 34 includes a nice removable stand that raises the harp up 5 inches (8-inch legs are also available). The stand removes in a snap with a quick twist of the knob.
Even with the additional bass range, this 4-3/4 octave harp is still compact enough for easy portability. For the beginner or budget-conscious player, the Crescendo 34 combines affordability with the pleasure of playing a sweet sounding midsize harp.

At The Harp Connection, we normally stock the Crescendo 34 with full Loveland levers (shown) and our price includes the optional CD34 form-fitted, soft-shell case. You can custom order a Crescendo 34 with other options from the custom-order menu below. We will occasionally have some of the earlier 32-string Crescendos available; they do not come with the removable stand.
