REUS 49 is an innovative extra-large harp that took four years of research and development. Its dimensions were increased in all: height, number of strings (49, down to 7th Oct. A) and the extension of the sound box and soundboard. The initiative for creating this groundbreaking instrument came from a project commissioned to Salvi Harps by the Dutch Musical Instruments Foundation on behalf of harpist Remy Van Kesteren, who closely followed the development of the harp. REUS 49 is now synonymous for “extra”.
