The Wyvis is our newly-designed floor-standing lever harp. With 34 strings, this is the standard size of a modern clarsach. The soundbox gives a clear treble and a rich bass, with sound holes in the back to allow easy replacement of strings. Loveland levers are fitted throughout, providing perfect semitones with minimal wear to the strings.

Strings: 34 strings, 23 gut strings and 11 composite bass strings. A stringing option with completely nylon strings is available. The Wyvis is available in clear, Georgian or Jacobean finish. See choosing a finish page.
