The Clarsach – Electro-Acoustic Harp


Awaiting Stock

Email when stock available

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.

Pilgrim Harps led the way with the first ever concert-strung Celtic harp. The result of this experiment produced an instrument with the fullest tone and range of dynamics we know from such a harp. The Clarsach is a performance lever harp originally commissioned by the legendary Derek Bell MBE, celebrated harpist with The Chieftains. Today it is firmly established as one of the most sought after Celtic harps the world over.
The design has been refined over many years, and we believe it to be unrivalled in tonal colour and range of dynamics by any other harp of its size. The Clarsach is also the ideal first harp for a young harpist who will one day want to play the classical harp, as the string tension and spacing on both are the same.
