    I had always been interested in all the types of instruments designed for the purpose of making melody and song. I have been a musician for many years on guitar and love to see others who enjoy it as well. Music is in our nature and soul. Peace...

In 1989 during our Honeymoon in Bar Harbor, Maine, my new wife and I entered a musical instrument shop called "Song of the Sea". I had purchased a "Door Harp Kit" from the merchant. I enjoyed building the harp as well as enjoying its’ welcoming song when ever we entered our apartment and now our home. With the dream of creating my own door harps always on my mind, I have finally created a nice little home based work shop and I am able to create these "one of a kind" Door Harps born out of a passion for song and woodworking. Made of Solid Oak framing and Birch or Oak sound boards, these harps will last for generations welcoming guests into your home with their soft harmonious songs.

Black Moon `Door Harps are inspired by a 300 year old Scandinavian tradition. It was and is still used to welcome friends and family into your home with their soft melody. Hung on the inside of your entrance door (or any door), the harp chimes from the motion of the door opening and closing.
Black Moon Door Harps will bring years of delight to you and your family. Steeped in tradition of prosperity and happiness it’s sure to become a family heirloom passed through the generations. Black Moon Door harps are handcrafted with tradition, enjoyment and pride.

As a Wedding Gift, Door Harps are believed to bring prosperity and good fortune to the newly wedded couple.

Also a believed tradition, the joyful sound of a Door Harp will remind you every time your door opens that Guardian Angels are watching over you and your visitors. The Angels and their Helpers are always with you, and the sound of your Door Harp is their way of saying, "Hello." Perfect for any child’s bedroom door.

Each Door harp is created, numbered and signed by the soul artisan Steve Eaton of Portland, Maine.

All harps are shipped via the USPS third class with delivery confirmation and a tracking number (that's the flat rate $8.00 fee per harp).

Additional policies and FAQs
Care and upkeep of your Door harp

Black Moon Door harps are handcrafted from hand selected woods and are meant to be mounted on any inside door of your home free from Mother Nature’s elements.
Like any instrument made of wood, your Door harp may swell and contract throughout the seasons. This may or may not effect the tuning of your Door Harp.
Black Moon Door Harps are tunable for that reason and you may also want to change its song from time to time.
If by chance one of the strings breaks…do not fret…”no pun intended”.
You can visit a local Music store with the broken guitar string in hand and they can match it up for you.
Cut the string to length with a wire cutter and restring the pegs while pushing the strings toward the harp keeping a tight winding.
A proper tuning wrench is preferred but, a small adjustable wrench will work too.
Keep in mind; the strings are short and very taut. Only slight nudges should be used while tuning.
Best results are obtained by de-tuning the string before bringing it back to pitch. Take notice of how the string is wrapped around the tuning post before turning it.
Your Door Harp should be kept out of reach of pets and children as small parts may become detached and ingested. Not good. Not good at all.


What is a Black Moon?
A Black Moon is when two New Moons appear within the same month. The second New Moon is known as the Black Moon. A unique and rare occurrence.
