Dave Woodworth, founder of Heartland Harps and Music, has been handcrafting harps since 1984. In Heartland’s first 25 years, they built more than 1,700 wood harps in a variety of models. Then in 2009, they fused the art of harp-building with cutting edge technology and introduced their first harp model fabricated from carbon fiber—creating a harp that is lightweight, impermeable to the elements, and virtually indestructible. To date they’ve built nearly 1,000 carbon fiber harps for delighted customers all over the world.
