Product Design & Accessories Edit

According to the Dusty Strings website:

"The FH series is their top-of-the-line range made from solid wood. The FH36S has the ideal range for a full-size lever harp: five octaves, starting and ending on C. It surrounds the player with a round, full-bodied and well articulated sound, and its generous depth, power and responsiveness make playing seem effortless.

  • 36 strings, 5 octaves
  • All solid wood construction in choice of 5 woods: sapele, walnut, bubinga, maple and cherry.
  • Comfortable stave back design
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Deluxe case

The sides and back of the soundbox consist of five facets of book-matched wood. This design puts a flat facet, rather than a corner, against the player's shoulder, which some find more comfortable and which makes it easier to reach the lower strings. This soundbox shape, as opposed to the rectangular soundbox of the FH36H, gives a subtly rounder sound with a slightly fuller bass voice.
The FH36S comes with a deluxe case and a custom tuning wrench."
