“Music…gives wings to the mind, a soul to the universe, flight to the imagination, a charm to sadness, a life to everything.” ~ Plato
Appalachian Spirit Folk Instruments specializes in making zithers, also known as lap harps, that reflect the inspiration of the Appalachian spirit. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality zithers possible. Every one of our instruments is handcrafted from solid woods. We currently offer zithers made in oak, pine, poplar or cherry. We also create zithers from maple, sassafras, Appalachian ash and cedar based on the availability of these woods. Each instrument will have its own unique characteristics. Musically, each zither will have its own distinct personality. They are built to last for generations.
