In Stock 2017
Updated March 11, 2017

Thank you so much for visiting our in stock page. Please come and visit us here in our shop and showroom, if you can. We would love for you to try out the harps we have. Or if you'd like, I can play them over the phone for you (cell phones garble the tone so when it's time to listen to harps, you'll need to use a land line). Let us know if you'd like to come and visit so we can be sure to be here and have the harps tuned up and ready to play. Call us 541 753-4334 or email us at harps@thorharp.com.

If you already know what you want, please call or email us about scheduling your new harp. You don't have to have your harp totally designed and decided upon before putting in your order, we'll help you figure out the details. The important thing is to get on our build list so you can get your harp sooner than later. We can always figure out the details later.

I got this in my emails this morning (the last day of 2015).

Good Morning Sharon,

Happy New Year. We woke up to a white frosty morning here. My trip home was seamless, with the new baby (harp) in the back seat. The whole trip up and back was smooth and somehow powerful because this harp Dave and you made is more perfect than I could have imagined. Given that my imagination is usually impossible to satisfy, I am still resting in the joy of appreciation of your gift of creativity.

I have been playing in the hospitals since 2008. There have been about 5 harps I have bought, sold, rented and borrowed. Each one seemed fine in the beginning, but as my technique developed and my ear became more discerning I wasn’t satisfied with them …. sometimes almost….., then not !

Meeting you, being there in the studio and seeing the different pieces of wood leaning against the wall, playing and listening to all your harps and then surprisingly knowing the one I wanted…..even before it existed, makes this harp sitting here now, truly a miracle. Out if my desire, and out of your gift of creativity, it is real.

People want to touch it. One patient said it is like touching live skin. My friends stare at it, and like me, don’t have words to describe its beauty. And the sound, how can it be so bright and rich being so young? I am still getting to know her, even though there have been many experiences of being drawn into being at one with her.

Please use anything I have said for your testimonials - even though my words can’t express my gratitude for your ability to create such a work of art.

All the best this new year.
