Cambria Harp Kits & Plans
Experience the Joy of building your own Folk Harp!
Well designed, high quality, solid wood with standard folk harp stringing tension and outstanding manuals.
Building your own harp can give you a sense of satisfaction as well as a quality harp at an affordable price. We offer the Cambria line of Folk Harp Kits & Plans. These are very good quality instruments, suitable for students, teachers, travelers, and those who do not wish to hock the family heirlooms just to get a harp. The Cambria harps are compact, and travel well. Tone is superb with excellent volume. The string band is well balanced tonally, with standard pedal harp spacing (except for the Wire string 22, which has standard spacing for a wire string harp).
Cambria Folk 34C
A good concert instrument, with sufficient range for almost any purpose, C-65.4 to A-1760. Our most popular Cambria model. It stands 50″ high. Solid wood, spruce soundboard optional. The Cambria harp kit is well designed, with extensive instruction manuals (the Stage 1-3 manuals total 54 pages!). You end up with an instrument you can be proud of. Since people vary in their level of skill, so do the Cambria Kits. They come in three different levels (well…four, if you count the “plan only”). Note that you can buy the manuals separately so you can see which stage is best suited to your skill level. Stage 1 harp kit: this is the plan, harp hardware & harp strings, and complete instruction manuals. You furnish the lumber. You will need a #4 tapered pin reamer. $275. plus $20. shipping/insurance. Plan and manuals: $65. plus $8. shipping/insurance. Plan only: This is a full size blueprint of the harp, with basic information. Included are string charts, helpful hints, materials lists, and data on computer parameters used in the design. Detailed instructions are not given, and previous instrument building experience is assumed. Harp plan and manuals are not returnable. $25. plus $6. shipping/insurance.
