THE CITHARA NOVA

(continue down the page for photographs)

This harp is the latest addition to Sandpiper Instruments. It is a quantum leap above anything we have built in terms of sound. It features the new synthetic fiber strings from France (found on the newer Camac harps) with none of the strings overwrapped, even on the 36 string model. The tension is lower than the equivalent string on a pedal harp, and provides a crystalline clear tone with far less string breakage. The clarity of each note is unmatched by any nylon strung harp. It may also be strung with gut strings.

This harp is offered in 34 and 36 string version, with levers on all strings. The instrument is unique in that it is "ready to go before you are!" Look for this harp to be a popular model in the future.

Strings: Gut or Synthetic Fiber
Levers: Loveland
Ranges: C2 to a6 (34 string model), C2 to c6 (36 string model)
Options: Crested Neck, Non-Crested Neck, Recurve Pillar, Arc Pillar
