My Irish 34 is a medium sized harp, with features typical of modern Irish or Scottish lever harps. The bright, lively sound comes from the specially selected soundboard wood, carefully thicknessed to maximize tone. The shell of the soundbox is constructed of seven staves perfectly joined to make the arched shape essential to great sound. The T form of the pillar and the hatchet shaped harmonic curve are traditional Irish design features. The Celtic decorations are reminiscent of those seen on the McFall harps made in Dublin in the 19th century.
