The Urquhart is a full-size bray harp, typical of those used across Europe in the 16th and 17th centuries. Both models are made of sycamore, are fitted with a full set of bray pins, and have an arm designed to accurately fret semi-tones.  With a range extending down to bass C, the Urquhart has a clear sound with the brays turned off and gives a satisfying growl when they are turned on.
