EMS 29 string Gothic Harp

I received this harp safely in Japan. Thank you very much. The sound of the harp is beautiful and well made. The bag is also functional and convenient to carry. I am very happy with this harp.

Great harp

Beautiful sound (seems more crispy on videos, in person it's perfect - at least to me), beautifully made (wood, patterns, cuts). The distance between strings is maybe a bit smaller than average, tension is nice, super comfortable - at least to me, strings resonate long after being struck. If tuning is changed from c major to something else, sharps seems to get a bit out of tune after a day or two, which is perfectly normal I guess, especially for a new instrument. Dimension-wise, it's the best to be played if you're sitting on a lower chair, but it's also possible if the bottom is anywhere between that and your sitting height. If you're taller and sitting on average height chair, some elevation for the harp may be needed. Notion: there's no enough space to upgrade it with bridge pins (and levers) - but it is definitely worth it. Amazing instrument. It was packed very securely, in many layers, shipping to Denmark was fast and without any problems.

Good aesthetics, less than average sound

Bought the EMS 29 String Gothic harp a few years ago. While it did look authentic to medieval harp design, the sound was quite disappointing. The mid range sounded good, but the bass was dull and muddy and the treble thin and shrill. I did play it in proper medieval technique by the way. It is ok as an inexpensive travel harp that you don't have to worry too much about, as the build is quite sturdy, but for anything else I cannot recommend it.

EMS 29 String Gothic Harp

The 29 string Gothic harp is a beautifully crafted instrument. The sound it produces has an uniquely renaissance timbre, a bright top and mellow bass. The padded bag is well made, and makes carrying this light harp even easier.

Best customer service, beautiful harp

I want to thank EMS for my beautiful harp, a gothic 29-string harp. The first one, I got, was unfortunately damaged within transport. In only 4! days I have had a new one sent to Germany! after a very nice conversation with Anthony from customer service. I am very pleased with my harp. It has a good tension, keeps the tuning very quick and well, has a beautiful and very special sound. Highest octave has an astonishing and beautiful bell-like sound. In that price range you won’t find anything like this harp definitely! A great, padded cover is included as well. Highly recommend EMS and the gothic 29-strings harp. Thanks for the beautiful harp!
