CUSTOM DESIGNS

Sandpiper offers a variety of custom services for an instrument. Many times a customer asks for a variation of our standard instruments, and we are more than willing to try and accommodate the changes.

Specifically, we can provide decorative services such as inlay of various materials, carving, wood burning, painting, custom decals, laser carving and staining.

When we provide extra decorations or a shape change of the instrument, we will quote a "not to exceed" price, meaning that the cost is fixed, no matter how long it takes to provide the service.

Your approval is always required before we proceed.

Concert Grand

THE CONCERT GRAND

(first designed as a custom harp)

This harp was designed specifically to look like a "real" harp (pedal harp), but have the sound volume of a Paraguayan harp, have 36 strings, be as light as possible (34 pounds), and be able to survive salt water spray, rain, and the high humidity and sun in Hawaii during outdoor weddings. The harp has been very successful and is very elegant in appearance.

INKLINE

This is an example of black inkline artwork. The image can be wrapped around the side of the soundbox, or placed elsewhere on the harp. The picture of the pillar and neck is a cubic zirconium stone mounted within the artwork, representing a water droplet on the tulip leaf. The star shape is the reflection of light from the stone.
