The standard soundboxes on our harps are a traditional flat back design, with a Finnish Birch laminate soundboard. We use Bartley Gel Varnish on our instruments. It is a hand-rubbed oil/polyurethane finish, to bring out the natural grain and color of the wood.
Available at an additional cost are: staved-back soundboxes and solid Sitka Spruce soundboards.
We welcome special orders for: woodburning, carving, staining, and piercework.
Our instrumentss are available in a variety of woods: Sassafrass, Beech, Cherry, Walnut, Ash, Hard Maple, Sycamore, Coffeenut, Figured Maple, Mahogany, Bubinga, Makore, Pudouk, Purple Heart, and Lacewood. Other woods are available upon request.http://www.argentfox.com/Woods.htm
