The Crescendo 34 is great blend of affordability, portability and depth of sound in a 4¾-octave range. With solid sapele wood neck, back and sides and a laminated birch soundboard (like the Allegro 26), the Crescendo 34 has a clear, bright sound with a deep, resonant bass.
For playing comfort, we've added facets on the upper corners of the back. This clever "hybrid staveback" design provides the ergonomic benefits of our popular 36-string staveback harp at a portion of the cost.
To keep the carrying size to a minimum while giving maximum flexibility of playing height, the Crescendo 34 includes an innovative removable stand. It has 5-inch legs and nestles into the base of the harp, attaching in seconds with the twist of a knob and without turning the harp upside down. 8-inch legs are an option for those who prefer more height. For those who like a lower height, the harp balances beautifully on the ground without the stand. The stand comes apart to fit in the case pockets.
The Crescendo 34 delivers a great combination of range, performance and value in an elegant and easy-to-manage harp.
