This beautiful Pebble Harp is our favorite outdoor (and indoor!) instrument. It is a one-of-a-kind, outdoor musical play element that creates never-ending entertainment with beautiful, random, musical tones from pebbles cascading over tiny metal "strings."
Very soothing, pleasing, tinkling, musical sounds are an excellent complement to the music of the wind, birds, rain, and other, gentle sounds of nature. Children will hear different sounds every time, as the pebbles vary in size and find different paths to the bottom and back out onto the ground.
Excellent for children who perseverate, or who like repetitive tasks, or who have ADHD, but every child will absolutely love playing with this instrument.
Great for a sound garden, or to place in the woods for kids to "find."
Readily available peastone is used to "pluck" the strings, although recently one of our customers placed the Pebble Harp in their lobby and invited people to feed coins into the slots -- as a way of raising money for their center!
There are several versions of the Pebble Harp. Some people just want the base, in which case there is no post and no roof. This can be used inside or out.
You can also get the Pebble Harp with a roof and tray which has a short post that does not go into the ground, so the Harp can be moved. The cork in the bottom of the tray (which, when used inside, attenuates the sound of dropping pebbles) is not weatherproof, so the cork should be removed if you’re taking it outside.
The Pebble Harp with the roof has a post that goes into the ground, so it would be for mounting in a permanent outside location such as in a garden, or musical area.
Indoors or out, this is a must-have musical element!
Made of Cedar, this beautifully designed Pebble Harp sounding box measures 24"x24"x24" plus the height of the roof.
