Special thanks must be given to Mother
Nature, who provides the raw material
essential to the construction of Salvi harps
Solid Michigan maple
is selected to guarantee
that Salvi harps are stable and long-lasting.
For the soundboard, only the best red spruce
from the forests of the Val di Fiemme
in Trentino is used. This is the same wood
that was used by Antonio Stradivarius
to construct his superb violins.
The neck is made from beech and maple
plywood to ensure high resistance to torsion.
These particular woods also help protect
the instrument from the force of the strings
which, in turn, maintains tuning.
The force of innovation
The quality of Salvi Harps is founded
on the perfect combination of nature
The rigorous selection of wood
only by constant research to guarantee
the utmost quality in design, comfort,
Our Research and Development laboratory
supports the entire production cycle
of the harp through design, process
development, and the perfecting of gluing
and varnishing techniques.
Only when the harp has passed the strictest
of final tests does it become a Salvi harp
Respect for tradition
The teachings of Victor Salvi
in the workshops of Piasco
Technology, innovation, and performance
are fundamental; but the harp must,
above all, be conceived, designed,
and constructed with the heart.
A passion for craftsmanship,
the pleasure of breathing in the fragrance
of wood in your hands, the wonder
and satisfaction of seeing an instrument
that takes on shape, substance,
and personality minute by minute,
day by day.
This is much more than a job:
it is a unique emotion to be shared
with all those who love the harp.
