With the help of the experiences I made past years I redesigned the nyckelharpa. After testing this harpa for a year 'in the field' I decided this harpa is from now on my standard model. I don't build the traditional harpas anymore!
The renewed shape of the body strikes most, together with the new soundholes. Together with a few changes 'under the hood' this results in a very strong yet perfectly balanced and open sound.
An innovation is the tilted head. This is not only to improve the appearance, but also to increase stringpressure on the saddle creating a nice sustain on open strings.
If you are looking for a grand nyckelharpa you should try this one!
Also available with a spruce back if you are looking for a more mellow sound.
