After a long period of research, testing and making we created the Nightingale EX an extended soundboard lever harp. The carbon composite body, matched with hand selected sitka spruce extended soundboard and solid maple neck and pillar, produces a clear and bright tone with outstanding projection.

The Nightingale EX has 35 strings spanning 6C to 1B. An extended soundboard made with hand-picked premiere quality quarter sawn sitka spruce giving the harp an extraordinary sound and beautiful tone. The neck and pillar are made from cross laminated Canadian hard-rock maple, the body is made using a special lamination of tone wood and carbon fibre to make it light and resonant. It stands 1.3 metres at its tallest point. Every harp comes complete with tuning key and dust cover. The Nightingale EX comes with a maple neck and pillar, and the body can be finished in a colour of your choosing, or with a natural wood finish.
All harps produced by Niebisch and Tree feature our unique semi-tone mechanism, which is free from all possibility of rattle and yet fully and easily adjustable. The semi-tone levers are made entirely of alloy steel, cast gun metal and stainless steel (this is to ensure no loss of tone and longevity of the mechanism). The string contact point is hand polished to ensure minimal string wear. With an easy to use single finger flip-action and a positive ‘on’ position which means no unnecessary fumbling and perfect semi-tones every time.
