Evoharp/Sparrowharp

   
Evoharp (full sized autoharp    Sparrowharp (3/4 sized autoharp)

The Evoharp (22″ tall x 11.75″ wide) combines elements of the old Oscar Schmidt A-models (made before 1970) with contemporary standards of craftsmanship. Its light weight makes it a pleasure to hold. The sound is a full and rich open tone. The Sparrowharp was designed for children or adults with shorter arms (20.5 inches tall x 9.5 inches wide).

The Evoharp is a handmade autoharp or chord harp, also known as a chorded zither. The Sparrowharp has similar characteristics but it is narrower in width for smaller bodies and shorter arms.

Designed as a 15-bar autoharp, The Evoharp may also be ordered in a 21-bar configuration or as a diatonic autoharp. People with bursitis and arthritis take pleasure in this harp because of its weight, size and action.

Case features handlers, shoulder strap and backpack option with larger music book storage. $50 case (if sold separately)
