It has been about seven years now since I got my beloved 34 strings ‘Kinneret’ harp, and I haven’t stopped praising it ever since. I’ve taken this harp with me (or shall I say – this harp has taken me?) touring around the country, and people always admire it for both its sound and appearance. What made me value the unique sound and quality of Woodsong harps all the more was the fact that my work has taken me abroad over the last three years or so. Not being able to take my Woodsong harp with me to the US and UK, I found myself exploring the sounds and feel of quite a few models from quite a few makers. While being well aware of (and glad about) the fact that each and every maker, wood type or even every tree and every individual harp have their own unique sound, I am now more convinced than ever that I prefer Peter’s beautiful harps to any harp around the world (no, it is not an overstatement, I genuinely mean it!). In addition to wood, nylon and metal, these harps are also comprised of great care, heart and soul, and definitely sound like it! (When giving a harp playing demonstration in my niece’s classroom, I’ve explained to the children that this harp was made by a man who lives in Rosh-Pina and picks the trees for each harp by himself, putting lots and lots of heart into the making of each instrument. They were deeply impressed…) The strings (of both the ‘Galilee’ and ‘Kinneret’ models) are very conveniently spaced, and their sound is deep and full-bodied. One of my favourite qualities of the sound of Woodsong harps is that it is not a “piano-like” sound, but a real, rich, Celtic harp sound. Technicalities aside – a word about Peter and his studio is also in place. This studio is one of my favourite places to visit, and is worth the visit whether or not one plans on purchasing an instrument. Peter is one of the kindest people I’ve met, and the instruments he makes are simply magical. Your purchase of any instrument from him will not end with you paying for the instrument and receiving it – he’ll be there for you with any question, problem, or just if you want to visit his cosy studio again and experiment some more instruments. I never get tired of visiting this inspiring place, ‘checking-out’ a new stack of harps, and dreaming of someday getting a ‘Galilee’ model (speaking of the ‘Galilee’ – you’ve never heard such a small harp with such a full sound!!! This is unbelievable!). I warmly recommend visiting the studio and buying a Woodsong harp (or any instrument)! You won’t regret it! Sincerely,

Just to let you know that we received our first door harp. It is beautiful.
I am sure that my niece will love it.
we just got the second door harp.
It is truly beautiful,
It has such an unusual shape and it is neat to have 5 strikers instead of 4.
I am sure that my nephew and his new wife will love it!
Essentially, the feedback was that visiting your studio and hearing you play the didgeridoo simultaneously with the marimba, playing the harp, and listening to the CD all provided a wonderful high point of our trip to Israel.
Indeed, there was a spiritual experience for us, and it was difficult to stand during "Amazing Grace."
English words are inadequate to express our feelings, and the best Hebrew word I know would be mem-fay-lamed-aleph, which is pronounced phonetically as "moofla."
You have been gifted especially by our Creator.
Upon purchasing the King David style door harp, it was envisioned that as soon as our luggage was placed in the living room floor when we arrived at home,
I would immediately unpack the door harp from the carryon bag and put it on the inside of the front door to our home.
Peter, that vision became a reality.
Thanks, my friend.
We received our door harps recently and are EXREMELY pleased!!!
The quality and craftmanship is beyond what we exptected (and we expected the very best, based on our research).
We are now eagerly awaiting news of availability of another Rosewood door harp.
thank you beyond words!

I just received the lovely door harp!
It's wonderful! The only question I have is in how to use the tuning key?
If you could briefly explain this to me I would be most appreciative.
Again, thanks for all of your correspondence and your professional manner.
It has been a pleasure!
Dear Les and Pete,
This is to let you know that the door harp was delivered moments ago this afternoon and is wonderful--I'm very pleased!
Thanks for your kind attention to my pre-purchase queries, for your prompt and careful shipment of my order; and, of course, for the beautiful door harp, which I and those around me will enjoy in the years to come.
We received the door-harp yesterday and were stunned by the craftsmanship; very elegant.
Thank you so much, we will sing your praises to everyone who sees it.
Happy and Safe Holidays to you all.
