New Carbon Fibre Workshop at Heartland Harps

Congratulations to Heartland Harps, who are opening their own carbon-fibre workshop on 1st May. This means that they are able to control all aspects of production and design and introduce new harps far more easily.
In celebration, Heartland Harps are offering a Limited Edition Harp for the first 50 harps made in the new shop. This applies to both lever and pedal harps and includes:

1. A framed collage of pictures of your harp being made—going through all the steps from the raw material coming out of the freezer and being cut on the computer cutting table to going into the autoclave and back out. Your name will be in a name tag in each picture, so you’ll know it’s really yours.
2. All the Heartland team members will sign each harp.
3. There will be a custom logo, with serial number, for the Limited Edition models.
4. Your name embroidered on the pocket of the case in gold thread to match the logo.

Morley Harps has two of these Limited Edition Harps on order. One is already spoken for; the other - a Legend 36 - is available on a first come, first served basis.

Contact us on 01367 860493 or harps@morleyharps.com for more information.
