The Grand Harpsicle® is one of the most unique harps available today. There is nothing like it and it has thrown tradition to the wind. The Grand Harpsicle® Harp is an electric harp, but if desired it can also be played acoustically. This is a feature not found in other compact electric harps. The acoustic body produces a much more dynamic sound compared to harps that are purely electric. It is a full range harp with 33 strings, (two octaves below middle C and two and a half octaves above Middle C.) but weighs no more than a professional electric guitar (11 pounds). It can be played as a floor harp while on it's detacheable legs or strapped on to play while standing and moving. It can even be played like a lap harp used with the Harpsicle® Stick.
The Grand Harpsicle® Harp is equipped with the Mi-Si Acoustic Trio Electric Pickup System which features an active, battery-free preamp. Simply charge the internal preamp for 60 seconds with the provided wall charger and you're ready to plug into an amp or PA system for up to 16 hours of play time. For the best results, the amp used should be a bass or keyboard amp to be able to handle the strong bass tones. The amp should be rated at 40 watts or more (A normal guitar amp is not recommended as they can sound tinny).
The Grand Harpsicle® Harp is now being used for everything from wedding receptions, to jazz and rock concerts, Irish pubs, and New Age groups. The Grand Harpsicle® Harp is also ideal for therapy work because of its mobility, weight, and extended 33 string range. Only your imagination can limit the possibilities with the Grand Harpsicle® Harp.
The Grand Harpsicle® Harp comes with Rees levers on all strings, a tuning wrench, strap buttons, a detacheable stand, a built in electric pickup with preamp, and a two year warranty.
