Sonnet Lap Harp (29 Strings)

(2 customer reviews)

The Sonnet Lap Harp has been a long time in the making and we worked hard to pack the tone of a full-size harp into this small, portable, lap harp.

A full 4 octaves beginning on C below middle C gives you plenty of range; more than most lap harps. The string set provides an even tension from top to bottom. Squarely in the medium tension range, the strings are comfortable on the fingers but still capable of expressive dynamics.

Beyond the look and tone, this harp is designed specifically for comfort. The cant of the neck, the angle of the base, the asymmetrical sound chamber, and the balance point all make this harp sit gracefully on your lap with little to no effort.

A final innovation are the access holes which are placed on the sides instead of the traditional location in the back panel giving the player a richer sonic experience.

We have always loved the natural grain of the woods we use and didn’t want the color to hide that; we wanted the color to accentuate the grain. Maple, being a wood that is lighter in color, makes the perfect canvas for our vivid color stains.

Maple is also available with some highly figured and beautiful grain patterns. We use select curly maple for the sides, neck, and pillar and offer a quilted maple veneer upgrade on the soundboard. The stain interacts with the figured grain patterns in exciting and surprising ways.

Colors include: Hot Pink, Tiger’s Eye Bronze, Autumn Red, Golden Wheat, Angelite Blue, Galaxy Purple, Emerald Isle Green.

    I ordered this harp and was pleasantly surprised to find that it is very stable on my lap. It also has a big sound for a lap harp. AT approximately 9.5 pounds, it is nice and light.

    Too tall

    This is an absolutely gorgeous harp w big sound. However, I never saw at the time I ordered, that height of player matters. I am too short to play this as a lap harp. I have to use a stool to place it on low enough for me to play. I did find a velour stool I can set it on & I place a rubber pad under it to stop it from sliding. I don’t know if this issue is addressed on the website but I didn’t see it when we ordered. Otherwise, I love my beautiful Sonnet.
