“Without a doubt, the highest expression of the harp maker’s art,” reads a description of the 1916 Lyon & Healy harp that inspired today’s glorious Louis XV Special concert grand harp. This masterpiece is superbly crafted, intricately carved and clad in lavish 23+ karat gold leaf. Inspired by the rococo style seen in French King Louis XV’s time, the harp conveys a light yet elaborate style of art, incorporating leaves, flowers, scrolled feet and shapes reminiscent of shells. Clear and resonant, it truly has the Lyon & Healy sound and carrying ability. The Louis XV Special has elaborate carving along its neck and kneeblock, as well as intricate carving along the soundboard edges, both on the sides and surface. The Louis XV Special is available with a distinguished Maple or exotic Bubinga veneer. An exquisite floral trellis design hand-painted on the soundboard using 23+ karat gold leaf. As a Lyon & Healy Special Instrument, the Louis XV Special comes with a unique miniature etching of a Lyon & Healy concert grand action plate design on the inside of the soundboard, a richly engraved, previously retired front action plate as well as an engraved back plate, a transport cover set and an extended 10-year limited warranty.
