Playing the harp is much easier and more enjoyable when you have an instrument that sounds good and functions well, and this is the driving concept behind the Ravenna models. To provide the best performance, the Ravenna is made with the same high-quality hardware and materials as our more expensive models. So, in order to meet our goal of affordability for the most budget-conscious harpists, we came up with an innovative construction technique that reduces the time we put into building them. We also priced separately all the accessories and options that are useful but not immediately essential, which is why the base price includes just the instrument and a tuning wrench. Each person can add exactly what they want or need to fit their budget.

Dusty Strings Boulevard Harp

Boulevard Classic 34

  • 34 Strings, 4¾ octaves
  • Solid beech neck and pillar
  • Laminated birch soundboard, sides and back
  • Concert-tension gut strings
  • Removable stand
  • Full set of Loveland sharping levers
  • Deluxe case

The 34-string Boulevard was designed with classical players and students in mind, and is quite different in feel and sound from our other harps. The tone is warm and full and the higher-tension concert gut strings provide a shorter sustain than the “typical” Dusty Strings sound. This makes the Boulevard an ideal choice for classical repertoire and for players and students who want a feel similar to that of a pedal harp.

Based on our popular Ravenna 34, the Boulevard features the same innovative and affordable construction technique, the comfortable stave back body, and the easily removable stand. We designed it to be as lightweight and portable as possible in a full-range harp, without sacrificing the quality of the hardware or the construction. The package includes a full set of Loveland sharping levers, tuning wrench, stand and CD34 case.

The four-legged stand is quickly and easily removable without needing to turn the harp over, and comes apart to fit in the case pocket. It includes 5” legs, but 8” legs can be substituted if you prefer the harp to be situated higher up.

The case is made of durable, water-resistant cordura with thick foam padding, a convenient shoulder strap and a multitude of pockets for your stand, music, extra strings and other accessories.

Price: $3195 Includes CD34 case, stand with 5" legs and T-handle tuning wrench.

In business since 1979, Dusty Strings Harp’s high degree of consistency from instrument to instrument helps people know that when they’ve played and liked a particular harp Dusty Strings has made, they can order that model for themselves with confidence. Even though each piece of wood has its own individual characteristics, the general quality of sound and construction will be the same. The only differences in the performance of their models are those that result from small, cumulative design improvements over time.

They focus on quality and consistency, using CADD (computer aided design and drafting) techniques to design their instruments and to produce precision jigs and fixtures. They use a computer numerical controlled (CNC) router, which is the ultimate tool for accuracy and repeatability, to help make the jigs and some of the instrument parts. Together with their craftspeople’s attention to detail and their skillful use of a host of woodworking tools, this use of technology ensures that the parts they make fit tightly and exactly every time.
