Neva 47 Extended Sound Board Concert Harp
One of the oldest harp factories in Europe has been reopened under new name to deliver quality and affordable instruments to all those who share our passion for harps, here at Derwent Harps we are very happy to be their UK agents.
With this new concert grand model we would like to commemorate Alexey Kaplyuk – the chief designer and the mastermind of Lunacharsky harp factory. It is nearly impossible to overestimate the contribution of Luncharsky factory’s luthiers to the art of the harpbuilding. The enormous passion for harps those people had is something to hold in respect. NEVA 47 is a brand new pedal harp model, but its creation would be impossible without the almost centenary experience of the Luncharsky factory.
The stylish shape of the extended board, special body construction, modern vibrating lenghts of the strings, choice of well-aged maple and sitka spruce creates the noble and profound sound of this harp. Due to special sounboard construction and careful selection of varnishes this harp has great dynamics and projection of the sound, best perceived in large acoustic concert halls. The Perfection model is one of the most lightweight concert grand harps currently available on the market.
The NEVA 47 has the distinctive “Russian” sound which many harpists adore – crystal trebles, clear middle and powerful resonant bass. It is also very responsive, with great dynamics.
