Horror Harp is a 100 year old sampled harp that I inherited from my wife’s grandmother. When I found out about the history of the instrument – that guitar strings were pulled over it during the Great Depression of the 1920s – I wanted to record it!

Crafted from cracked and scratched antique wood, this atonal instrument rattles and growls with a distinct character. This harp has been bent, banged, stabbed, slapped, plucked, strummed and punished to produce terrifying, unique sounds you have never heard before. Horror Harp will add some flair to your next horror product.
