In terms of music creation, most songs and notes are created from computer desktops and synthesizers, which is why this peculiar harp instrument is unique by today’s standards. The Wheelharp is an instrument that allows people to imitate the sound of an orchestra with the use of piano-styled keyboards. A wheel is used to play the 61 different strings inside the harp instrument with a push of a key.

People can play with multiple bowed string instruments at an instance. The Wheelharp provides a rich sound of bowed string instrumentals that modern-age technology cannot synthesize. Listening to the Wheelharp is similar to listening to a group of orchestral violin players. Mitchell Manger and Jon Jones of Antiquity Music in Los Angeles designed the instrument.
