The Ashdown Electro-Acoustic Folk Harp
This harp features all the legendary attributes that you would expect from Pilgrims original harps but with the addition of a special new pick-up system. This system retains the full integrity of tone and evenness throughout the range. Convenient to use, it can provide anything from a little sound enhancement to full volume amplification.
Designed in 1993, was born out of the increasing use of harps in traditional Celtic music. This lighter-strung lever harp is ideal for playing fast, delicate ornamentation in Irish music, or as an accompanying instrument to the voice – for which its bright, silky resonance is perfectly suited.
The most popular wood for harp making is maple, but the Ashdown’s slightly softer string tension enables us to use different solid woods, in particular ash and mahogany.
Because this harp requires a little less effort to play, it is also particularly suited to adult players coming to the harp later in life.
