The Rose is a substantial wire-strung lap harp, with a bright, resonant sound capable of filling a cathedral.  It is based on carvings of mermaids playing harps on the fireplace at Kilravock Castle, home of the Rose family, near Cawdor.  The Rose is made of Sycamore, with a hollowed-out soundbox, exterior integral string band, brass string shoes, chamfered arm and a pillar reinforced with a T-section. It has an Oak back.  The range is of over three octaves, with a bass drone silver string, tunable to either bass F, G or A; the remaining brass strings ascend from tenor c up to treble f'''. It is available in clear, Georgian and Jacobean finishes.  See 'Choosing a Finish' page.
