Horror Harp is a sampled 100-year-old lap harp that I inherited from my wife‘s grandmother. When I learned about its heritage–that it had been strung with guitar strings during the 1920’s Great Depression era–I had to record it! With cracked and scratched antique wood, this atonal instrument rattles and growls with distinct character. This harp has been bowed, knocked, stabbed, whacked, plucked, strummed, and punished to produce horrific one-of-a-kind sounds you’ve never heard before. Horror Harp will add a unique flavor to your next horror score.

Sonically Grotesque . . . In A Good Way

Horror Harp certainly delivers on its namesake. Almost every sample is abrasive & unsettling. The few that aren't are disturbing & eerie. An absolutely unique library with a variety of uses . . . Horror scoring being the most obvious
