Harps for Angels
Quality Vintage Musical Instruments - for Angels!
Angel Harps are restored vintage autoharps chosen for their beauty and craftsmanship. They are converted to be more like their historical predecessors: the zither and lyre. These instruments have been used for thousands of years in cultures throughout the world, and their soothing sonorities have helped to balance and stabilize the human energy system in times of trial and tribulation. These harps are specifically tuned to have a healing effect using frequencies derived from sacred geometry of the Platonic Solids. There are only five geometries that fit into this category, and they represent the Five Elements including ether. They are the building blocks of the universe, informing us of the Original Intent. Listening to and feeling the vibration of these frequencies will entrain one to the purity and perfection of Creation itself!
And what exactly is this sacred tuning? They are the angles, faces and vertices of the three dimensional Platonic Solids which sum to the frequencies of what we will call the Cosmic Chord (F#9 harmony) or the Divine Interval (Perfect Fifth) calibrated to A=428 Hz. The strings of the harps are tuned to these frequencies and create the perfect instrument for transmitting these sacred vibrational frequencies.
Performance requirements are minimal: you simply strum your fingers or a pick across the strings and make a celestial sound! There are no wrong notes. And with a Good Attitude, you can make anyone feel instantly at ease with these lovely instruments - a gift from the Heavens!
Harps are tuned to your choice of the Divine Interval, Cosmic Chord, Angelic Harmony or Mystical Minor. Chord charts are provided so you can perform your own tuning. With minimum effort you will be creating celestial glissandos aligned with the heavens and harmony of the spheres!
ANGEL HARPS - for the Angels Amongst Us!
A lovely Vintage Angel Harp for you! ChromaHarps are made in Japan, and always hold up very well over the years. They have a bright and beautiful tone. This one was made in 1988, and has a SunBurst finish. Comes with a tuning wrench.

For those who love the "natural" look of wood, without too much gloss or shimmer, this is the Angel Harp for you. An older line of autoharps from Oscar Schmidt, an older maker, this harp was manufactured in the USA. Date uncertain, but because it uses a bridge instead of pegs at the top, it can safely be considered "antique". An inch shorter than most modern autoharps - 22" x 11.5" - and lighter. A real beauty, and lovely sound too!
Musician's Special. A rare model - one of a kind - you won't find many of these no matter where you look! Features dark burgundy mahogany sides and back and a golden natural gloss Spruce top. Vintage 1972. If you want to stray away from the pack, this harp will guarantee that! This one is a well-used and professional gigging instrument - not kept in a box. A beautiful player. Comes with tuning wrench.
This is a unique Rosewood Zither made in Germany, with six chords and a double course of strings like a twelve string guitar or hammered dulcimer. This is an unquestionably beautiful instrument, and not for the faint-hearted: tuning is unusual, touchy and there are 92 strings! Tuned to the Cosmic Chord in B over two octaves: B - C# - D# - F# - G#. The chords retain the original tuning, but at 1/2 step down to align with the B scale. Unusually bright, beautiful and ethereal. There is one crack on the front soundboard, not unusual for an antique of this age, but it is stable. Ideally the new owner will have some musical background to fully exploit this instrument - a true show stopper!
This is an antique zither, which predates autoharps. It has two octaves for melody and four chords. This is tuned to the Platonic Solids Key of B. It follows the notes on the soundboard, but one-half step down. It can play music as written for the zither, but it will be in the key of B instead of C, and in the standard tuning of A=428 Hz. A beautiful tone and lovely reddish brown patina will delight the eyes and ears of any Angels nearby!
This is an unusual harp, made in the 1970s, larger, heavier and with 44 strings - eight more than the usual 36. It can play longer glissandos and with eight more strings vibrating, has a rich, sweet resonance. It is also a left handed instrument, made to be played on a table. A deep burgundy-brown hue accents this rich addition to your stringed orchestra! (Note: a regular sized Chromaharp is placed side by side in the final photos for a sense of scale).
The zither is predecessor to the autoharp. This one heralds from the land of zithers: the German Democratic Republic. Tuned to the Platonic Solid Frequencies, this is in the Key of B, half-step down from the standard C tuning: both melody and the five chords. Thus it can play music written for it, but will be transposed to B, the foundational frequency of these sacred geometries. This zither is vintage but in showroom condition. A real treasure that will take you swiftly back to the Old Country!
Although this model does not have a soundhole, the rich resonance is stunning. Featuring a maple top, back and pin block, it is a solid instrment through and through. Tuned to A, the Ether Element, it features the minor 6th "Arabian Nights" which lends it a sense of mystery. If you are looking for a harmony to play in the fields of the Unexpected, look no further!
HARPS FOR ANGELS
Harps for Angels is a coming together of a number of different key elements spanning a lifetime. In my youth I was introduced to the magical sound of the autoharp, which is an evolution of the zither with added chord bars to make playing chords easier. I remember thinking how playing melodies was difficult given its chromatic tuning and the close distances between the strings. There was also a clicky pick noise created by strumming those strings dampened by the chord bars. I wasn't aware that the zither from which the autoharp evolved had been made with chromatic and diatonic tuning (major scale) as well as several chords, from three to six, playable without the dampening effect of chord bars and the clicking sound. The zither had a beautiful ethereal sound but like most musical instruments requires a lot of practice to develop mastery enough to want to share with anyone.
About fifteen years ago I began teaching classes on Sound Healing, and from the beginning I included the importance of the Elements in sound. In a nutshell, the Elements are the building blocks of the Universe, and human physiollogy is not separate from them and Nature, but operates with all Elements intact and working in harmony. A few years later I was introduced to the Platonic Solids, in the form of a set of crystals. Platonic Solids are a discovery attributed to Plato, five geometries with specific characteristics which make them unique in the field of conceptual mathematics:
• All faces are the same size
• All edges are the same length
• Only one angle is found throughout the entire shape
• All points touch the [inside] edge of a sphere perfectly
That is the definition of a three dimensional Regular Polyhedron. And there are only five in the known universe.
