Piasco (CN), Italy – April 9, 2021 – Salvi Harps is pleased to introduce the new carbon fiber body Delta C, a lighter version of the popular Delta, with overall reduced dimensions, at a mere 3,8 kg (8.3 lbs). This goal was achieved through precise engineering by the Salvi Research and Development team. The new bold and high-tech look of the Delta C carbon fiber body is captivating. Its lightness makes this instrument very easy to handle, and its carbon fiber structure allows one to experiment different percussive sound effects. The Delta C’s shape and lightness allows versatility to musicians to play it their own way – sitting, standing or even moving onstage. “By making the Delta C lighter and easier to play, we have opened a new universe of creative possibilities for musicians,” said Marco Salvi, President, Salvi Harps and Lyon & Healy Harps, “it offers a professional and highly expressive new voice.”
The original shape is a winner of the prestigious Red Dot Award for Design (2017). As stated by the jury “The Delta harp presents an innovative symbiosis of classical craftsmanship and the latest technology – the result is a compact melodic instrument.” Both the original solid body Delta and carbon fiber Delta C are available as 29-string models (2nd Oct C to 6th Oct C). These electric instruments allow resonant, dynamic and immersive performances, also with the use of all kinds of effects processors. Ready to plug-in-and-play, they are compatible with recording equipment and PA systems, bringing a dynamic to live performances and studio sessions.
The Delta C has an introductory price of $7,900 (normally $8,600); the Delta is $4,500. Both models come with a strap, base, gig bag and tuning key; a flight case and tripod stand are available separately.
