We are very proud to announce the latest development in our range: the Ulysse (Ulysses). An ultra-light, highest-quality concert lever harp created together with Elisa Vellia, the Ulysse is a 34-string harp that weighs just over 8 kg. Elisa dreamed of a robust, light and reliable harp, with a deep and rich sound, for traveling to audiences throughout the world. After months of work, Jakez François, our master craftsmen and our in-house engineers have turned this vision into reality.
The Ulysse combines centuries-old traditions of luthiery, in particular through a magnificent spruce soundboard, with innovative modern materials such as carbon fiber and titanium. It is the quintessence of a savoir-faire acquired through years of experience with fine instruments, such as those that are the pride of our company: for example our Concert Mélusine, Aziliz, Janet and Telenn Kadiou. This expertise is combined with our state-of-the-art developments from the DHC ultra-light ElectroHarp.
The Ulysse is strung with Alliance™ fluorocarbon strings, for a supple yet strong touch ideal for traditional music.
The first stop on its journey will be Parisian. At L’Espace Camac on Sunday, March 8th at 6PM, Elisa Vellia will blend her voice with that of the Ulysse, in workshop and concert.
You are cordially invited to discover them both! Please reserve your places for the launch directly with L'Espace Camac: +33 (0) 1 40 40 08 40, firstname.lastname@example.org.
