This 'harp was designed with the player in mind. The Sunburst satin finish gives the OS21CE a very attractive look with a classic touch. The body is made with select maple wood, designed for strength and optimal support. It is a very light-colored hardwood with a very even grain texture.

The pin blocks in many of the finest autoharps consist of hard rock maple for extra strength. The pin blocks are laminated rock maple pin blocks meaning they are specially coated for extra strength. The purpose of the pin block is to firmly hold the tuning pins in place where the strings are attached. The added strength of the laminated rock maple ensures that everything will stay in the right place. Multiple layers of maple laminations are cross-banded using a special high frequency, waterproof gluing process. Reversing the grain direction on each layer of lamination yields incredible strength and the high-frequency waterproof glue seals the laminations protecting the pin block from changes in the relative humidity.

“An American instrument of American invention.”

The Autoharp is one of the few musical instruments that can claim to be truly American in origin. Invented in 1881 and patented in 1882, the Autoharp has had a remarkable hundred-year history. After being proclaimed “the nation’s favorite musical instrument” and then nearly fading into obscurity, the Autoharp has taken its manufacturers on an endless roller coaster of ups and downs. As a nineteenth-century parlor room favorite, it was finally replaced in popularity by the phonograph. The Autoharp did not die. It retreated to the mountains where it underwent a metamorphosis from a parlor instrument to a folk instrument. From there it came out into our schools to become a classroom feature and finally, has emerged as a popular instrument for the serious musician.
