|Stoney End Harps|
|Hand Crafted Harps made in the USA|
Stoney End harps are made in the USA. The strings are spaced as on a full sized concert harp. Solid walnut or cherry is used for the structural frame and pinblock with plywood side and back panels. The special thin laminate soundboard provides exceptional strength with low weight and allows a free vibrating top.
Stoney End harps are often praised for offering the best combination of a great sound and affordable price. They are very reliably made, and always look and sound fantastic.
Here's a link to an episode of US TV Program 'Off 90' which begins with a feature about the making of the Stoneyend harps, and the people who make them.
Stoney End harps are made in the USA. They are all strikingly good looking and have a really lively and bright response, which is maintained all the way to the top end. Stoney End make lap harps and floor harps in a variety of styles. All of the Stoney End harps that are imported into the UK (apart from the Wee Bonnie model) are fully levered with American made Loveland levers, but the harps can be ordered to any specification.
On the larger Stoney End harps, the strings are spaced as on a full sized concert harp. The lap harps have slightly closer spacing. Solid Walnut or Cherry wood is used for the structural frame and pinblock. The plywood side and back panels are inserted into dado cuts in the solid corners and the base. This makes a durable and strong, yet very lightweight harp body.
The unusual soundboard is at the heart of the Stoney End sound. A Baltic Birch laminate is used, which provides exceptional strength with low weight and makes it possible to have cutouts on both the bottom and top ends of the string band. This opens up the soundboard and makes it free to vibrate over its entire surface, something that thicker, stiffer, more confined soundboards cannot do.
Stoney End harps are often praised for offering the best combination of a great sound and affordable price. They are very reliably made, and always look and sound fantastic. The workshop where the harps are built is based in a huge barn in Red Wing, Minnesota, which also acts as a showroom and shop. Visitors to the workshop and showroom are invited to watch the harp building process through viewing windows.
