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,

Hello,

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!

Thanks again.

Shalom Peter.

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.

Hi Les.

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!

Regards,

Randi R

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.

Sincerely, Myles

I recently purchased a 'Classic Door Harp' in Dark Chestnut as a wedding gift for a young lady that is very special to me. I am so happy I chose to purchase from WoodsongGalilee. It is not only a perfect gift, but a true and original work of art. Lovingly made, this door harp will definitely last a lifetime and beyond. The communication I had with Leslie at Woodsong was outstanding. What a lovely person. Pete, the owner, is a master at his craft. Shipping was very fast and the door harp was well packaged. I highly recommend this business to anyone who wants an original, quality made and truly beautiful stringed instrument. I have decided to order myself the same door harp - it's so beautiful I can't imagine my home without one. Thank you Lesley and Pete. You are doing a wonderful job.

When we received Belly harp we could not take hands off the instrument it is so nice and cute. We look for instruments with warm sound. Belly Harp's structure and sound fits well with instruments that were used in Antique culture especially in ancient Druid culture. We read fairy tales to school children accompanied with music played on ancient/old instruments. We participate in ancient club fairs. We show that in old times there weren't only swords and war but also there were music and love.

Absolutely beautiful! I could not have been happier with this product. We hung it on our front door and we now close the door twice just to listen to the sounds. Shipped on time and in good condition.

Absolutely beautiful lyre in looks with an equally beautiful, relaxing, heavenly sound! Wonderful customer service from Pete and Lesley.  This was packed and shipped perfectly for the trip from Galilee to Michigan. I highly recommend WoodsongGalilee! Thank you.

Hi Lesley!

I received the harp today. It must have had a tail wind, although I totally prayed it would come early! Laughing.

I love it.  It is beautiful and I can't put it down. I have one question though, if one of the strings breaks, how on earth do I get the string restrung?

Blessings to you,

Apryl

Dear Woodsong,

My beautiful walnut hamsa doorharp arrived today, in rural Northern California. It matches our walnut table that my husband's brother made for us. When I hang it, I'll send a photo.

Once again, thank you for such lovely work. This piece can be passed down to my son.

Shalom

Sincerely,

Traci
