Delta combines traditional harp craftsmanship with a solid body and cuttingedge audio technology to a professional-sounding instrument. The placement of the pins and levers in controversial straight lines leads to a significant size reduction in the string scale length so that an extended bass range could be accommodated in a portable instrument. The bridge pickup system provides a clean sound across the whole frequency spectrum. Delta is compatible with all effect processors, recording devices and PA systems.
Statement by the Jury
The Delta harp presents an innovative symbiosis of classical craftsmanship and the latest technology – the result is a compact melodic instrument.
