Build your own 22 String PVC folk harp, the PVC Piper Harp.
This kit is for the DIY PVC Piper Harp project where you provide the PVC pipe & we provide the instructions, strings & hardware.
This harp has 22 American standard, color-coded strings: Red C's/Blue F's.
This is a relatively fast and easy project to make a fun, experimental harp with very little upfront expense or investment (compared to full-size, pre-made wood harps). The kit's plans include Full-Sized templates.
The kit is simple to put together & can be assembled in about a day or two using basic hand tools. Stringing & tuning will take more time.
