Heartland Harps have been handcrafting harps since 1984. For the first 25 years, they built wood harps in a variety of models. Then in 2009, they fused the art of harp-building with cutting edge technology and introduced the first harp model fabricated completely from carbon fiber—creating a harp that is lightweight, impermeable to the elements, and virtually indestructible. To date they've built nearly 1,000 carbon fiber harps for customers all over the world. They currently offer five models of harps, including both lever and pedal harps. And, coming soon… a 25-string lap harp that’s ideal for travel or therapy.

The Starlight is their full-sized Concert Grand 47-string pedal harp, with a precision mechanism made in Switzerland. It is strung with Premier Gut Strings, D’Addario nylon uppers, and tarnish-resistant bass wire strings. The voice of this harp is even throughout the range, from a strong, powerful bass to a clear, resonant upper register. The Starlight possesses the same durability, stability, and other advantages of all our carbon fiber harps.

The Starlight weighs an astonishing 17.2kg, making it even possible to carry Starlight by its column, in the horizontal position, the way many lever harp players carry their harps. The Starlight opens up a whole new world of harp playing.
