...for excellence in sound and craftsmanship since 1964

All Orthey autoharps (Dulci-Harps™) are made of the finest woods and incorporate a laminated maple pin block. They can be customized with select wood, body type and chord bar selection and arrangement. Hand-crafted and individually fitted to each instrument, Orthey chord bars are the quietest, smoothest, and fastest to be found today.

All Orthey autoharps are full chromatic instruments.
