Dear Sue and Alex,
I am so glad I can finally play the new harp in my house. It is really beautifully
made, especially I love the sound and resonance. Thank you very much for everything
you have done for me. I am really grateful. When I first saw your web-site, I
thought "I want to play the harp Alex made." I had never thought of
buying a harp via Internet, it is so risky. But I followed my intuition. I was
so attracted. And now I know my first expression was right. It is a big Christmas
present for myself. I will play the harp you made in a lot of concerts and I
am sure people will love it.

Dear Alex and Sue:
In 40+ years of being a harpist, I've played and enjoyed many different harps.
But playing my new Ultra-Lite has been like a reawakening to the beauty of the
You know, I fell in love with this harp at the Somerset Folk Harp Festival for
its incredibly sweet and rich tone. My friend and I were walking around the conference
showroom and stopped "dead in our tracks," because Whoa! Someone behind
us had started to play one of your harps, and we had to find out where that big,
gorgeous sound was coming from.
But now that it's home with me, I am constantly discovering wonderful things
about this harp. Like, how easy it is to find the harmonics on it. How incredibly
responsive the harp is, allowing me to be very expressive, with a great tone,
both loud and soft. The string tension feels perfect—the pluck seems to leap
off the finger! I feel the physical vibrations of the sound more intensely than
I can ever remember feeling, sitting behind a harp.
Lately, I've been noticing how beautiful the wood is. I like so much about
it... the figure of the wood, the way the soundboard is one piece, not two matchbook
pieces (it's just more interesting!), the beveling on the curved arm and the
point. I love the overall design, with the subtle double curve of the soundbox—I
particularly love that, the whole design looks so beautifully fluid; how lightweight
it is; even the little hole drilled into the brace, to hold the tuning
key out of sight but handy... That's such a great detail, and I've never seen
that before. The range is ideal, going down to the low C, and the bass booms
out deep and satisfying, surprisingly so for this sized harp.
It feels like this harp was made by someone who knows what it's like to play
a harp. I feel very aware of the harpmaker's genius when I play it, because it's
so exceptional: the visual aesthetic of its design, the craftsmanship of the
woodwork, and most of all, its exquisite sound.
So, thank you so much! I feel refreshed as a harpist.
