The therapy models of harps are designed to be lightweight and economical. They offer excellent tone for use in therapy work and also serve as entry level harps for beginners or for those seeking a less expensive harp. Many harp teachers are recommending these harps for their students and more and more harp practitioners working in hospitals and hospices are using these harps, delighted by their portability and quality of tone and craftsmanship. They are available in Cherry and Walnut. Neck, pillar and soundbox sides and blocks are solid hardwoods. The flat back is a hardwood-veneered laminate and the soundboards are made of imported Scandinavian 5-ply aircraft grade Birch. We offer custom carvings. These harps are also available as unfinished kits.

The Raphael 26 Therapy Harp is designed specifically for the work of bringing healing harp music to those in hospitals and nursing homes, and for vigils at the bedside of the dying. It has a warm, resonant tone but is not overpowering when used in a close setting with a patient. It is lightweight (about 8 lbs) and can easily be transported, an important consideration for the harpist. The neck reinforcement is added for both strength and to give the harp a sculptural feel, adding to its soft curves and rounded edges.

The lowest note is C below Middle C and the lowest octave has wound nylon strings. The harp is sold with a case and Truitt levers on Cs and Fs. Because it is large for a lap harp we offer an adjustable hardwood lap bar that secures in one of the back openings and rests across the thighs. NOTE: The Raphael 26 is not guaranteed to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane.
