The harp-E project aims to provide as many affordable harps to education as possible - get in touch for a bespoke collaboration
Developed with children
For heavy use
The Harp·E is designed for carefree use by all age groups because of the sturdy levers, soundboard and wooden exoskeleton that shields the high tech parts safely inside.
The smart flat pack design makes the Harp·E the most compact harp in the world. Even a young child can carry it in the included backpack. Now children can bring their own harp to class or or anywhere else!
For children's hands
Because of the unique, patented lever system, the string spacing could be designed for children's fingers rather than dictated by minimum lever distances, unlike any other lever harp.
Because we believe the harp should be for everyone, we've made sure the Harp·E can be assembled as a completely mirrored left-handed harp just as easily.
Developed with teachers
Highest string quality
The ultra-strong construction of the Harp·E means we could use the higher-tension premium Italian SilkGut strings. This means a much better feel, sustain and tension distribution, akin to professional harps.
Optimal string range
We worked tirelessly with teachers to establish the perfect string range for all songs taught in school. Just the right amount and reach to play anything you'd want, yet in a compact and affordable harp.
Control over the class
The Harp·E has a pleasant acoustic volume when rehearsing at home or during class, but when needed can be amplified to level with other instruments and controlled by the teacher.
The built-in native amplification means children can be heard on their small harps in any orchestra or band performance and you could take them on a journey of experimentation with effects.
Developed with schools
Large numbers of Harp·E can be stored in a very small space. Because of the flat pack design and the fact that all high-tech elements are safely hidden inside an ultra-sturdy frame, they are easily stacked on top of eachother.
Apart from being super-sturdy, the Harp·E is designed so that any damage is very easy to DIY repair: it has simple materials, an open and straightforward construction using standardised parts.
The stand is designed so that the Harp·E can be easily clicked from one of the 3 height settings into another, simplifying switching between subsequent age groups.
For larger schools and organisations we can design bespoke ways of working together to reduce the costs even further or address specific design requirements.
