WURLITZER STARKE MODEL ORCHESTRAL PEDAL HARP (47) #1008

SOLD

Considered built circa 1930s, this beautiful gold Wurlitzer Starke Model Orchestral Grand pedal harp has been the current owner’s instrument since 1962. It was played for performances, recitals and orchestral work. 

In 2012 the harp had a major overhaul at the Lyon & Healy factory in Chicago which included a new neck, action re-revit, baseboard re-fit and gilding touch-up throughout.  

The restoration work done by Lyon & Healy is extensive and the re-gilding is very beautiful. 

The harp has been maintained and tuned regularly. Like many Wurlitzer harps of this era, the sound is rich and resonant and well-balanced across all registers.

Magnificent, warm, rich, 1930’s jazz era sound. This particular Wurlitzer is very unique in that it has all its original parts and the soundboard is in excellent, playing condition.

Range is 45 strings from low D to high F. This is a perfect pedal harp for someone who wants an easier & lighter string tension on a pedal harp with a big sound or wants that special genuine Wurlitzer tone.

The harp has been checked and regulated by harp technician Mike Lewis. It is currently tuned and being played. The harp is kept along with the owner's other harps in a music room with proper humidity and temperature control.
