MUSA 47

Available in: Natural (N) | Walnut (WN)

A grand concert harp that boasts a powerful yet beautifully soft sound, matched only by its hand carved Arabesque patterns and gold plated hardware.

This innovation provides a continuation of the soundboard extension into the treble section. This increases the surface area of the soundboard to enhance tone and sound projection.

Monarch 47

As the name suggests this is Aoyama’s jewel in their crown, a grand concert harp that is as harmonically stunning as it is visually spectacular (We are pretty sure that this is what angels play). Several specifically chosen types of spruce are used on the sound board for perfectly balanced harmonic response across all of the strings. Hand carved designs on both the pillar and pedestal are coated in gold foil, making this harp a work of art.
