Ravenna 26 and 34 by Dusty Strings

The Dusty Strings Ravenna 26 and Ravenna 34 provide an exciting option for the discerning, cost-conscious harp enthusiast. These instruments are handcrafted in America using laminated Finland birch and solid ash. The stave-back soundbox is constructed from laminated European birch with an innovative ash-grained vinyl veneer that is available in Black (standard), Forest Green or Burgundy. The vinyl is both comfortable to hold and protects the harp from scrapes and bruises.

The 26-string model is highly portable yet still features the rich and satisfying sound Dusty is known for. The Ravenna 34 is a full-range instrument spanning nearly five octaves (from C two octaves below Middle C up to A 2-¾ octaves above Middle C). Both harps are available with full or partial Loveland levers installed and come pre-drilled for full levers. The optional drop-down leg slides smoothly into place for convenient and adjustable playing support.
