Delta

Back

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.
