FH34 Dusty Strings

The FH34, Dusty String's compact, 4-3/4 octave, all-solid-wood model, delivers brightness, depth, and clarity along with both portability and range. A little smaller than their 36-string harp, the FH34 has enough resonance and beauty to delight both the professional harp player and the person new to harping.

These harps are constructed from an amazing collection of hardwoods. The soundboard is solid Honduras mahogany in the mid and upper ranges and spruce in the bass, overlaid with book-matched figured hardwood veneer and bordered with purfling and edge binding. Sapele, American Black Walnut, Eastern Maple and Bubinga are available for the neck, pillar, sides and back.

The FH34 comes with a deluxe, thickly padded, form-fitting case made with 1/2-inch thick foam sandwiched between a soft inner lining and a tough outer covering of waterproofed cordura. Case includes zipper access, large accessory pocket, long-lasting leather trim and handles, extra grips for easy handling, and detachable shoulder strap. Backpack straps are available for the case.
