The World's 1st Tunable Harmonica
When it comes to customizing and innovating harmonicas, TurboHarp has been an industry leader for over 25 years! We've made some of the world's best harps even better and have developed some of the coolest Harmonicas of the Future.
TurboHarp is part of AntakaMatics, Inc. (AMI), a musical instrument technology company located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. TurboHarp was founded in 1996 by world-renown bio-medical engineer and inventor, James F. Antaki, PhD, to develop and commercialize harmonicas. These innovative harmonicas are the result of Dr. Antaki's ongoing pioneering studies on the acoustics of harmonicas since 1990.
Today, the company's portfolio includes an extensive product line that features some of the most unique harp creations in the field since the invention of the harmonica nearly 200 year ago. This extensive development has resulted in five US patents.
The primary focus of TurboHarp is to provide a customize-able harmonica experience for our customers. Please feel free to Email Us with any questions you may have to help make your TurboHarp experience a great one!
