STRINGS

HARP IN LA keeps a decent quantity of strings for purchase at our studio in Pasadena, CA. We ship same day, depending the hour that you place your order. Our shipping charges are shipping/package charges (no hidden fees).

We stock strings for Dusty Strings harps and the following strings used for pedal and some lever harps; Bow Brand pedal gut, Burgundy pedal gut, Artist pedal nylon, Bow Brand Lever gut, Bow Brand Lever nylon, Bow Brand Lever and Professional bass wires and Bow Brand TRW Pedal bass wires (Tarnish-resistant wires with colored Cs and Fs).  All are available for purchase by octave or single note. Please call or email for shipping costs and availability.

STRING CHARTS: 
Click on the name of your harp model below to view a printable pdf string chart for your harp. Most string charts include current costs. If the link is not working, it means we are updating the string chart. Call or email HILA and tell us what you need.

We have a number of string charts from other makers, so if you don't see your harp listed, or if you are unsure what type of harp you have, contact HILA and we'll figure it out together.

Just because your harp is a lever harp, does not necessarily mean it uses lever harp strings. "Play" Safe, check your string chart.

BURGUNDY STRINGS:
Bow Brand Burgundy pedal gut strings are an economical alternative to Bow Brand standard pedal gut strings. Burgundy strings have slight visual imperfections, such as variations in color or very small divots, which do not affect performance. Priced about 30% less than Bow Brand standard pedal gut, Burgundy strings are popular with both students and professional harpists alike.

SILKGUT AND KC STRINGS:
These strings are used on various Salvi lever harp models. HILA can order these strings for you (7 day turn-around) but if you are in a rush, it's best to purchase these strings from Lyon & Healy West, or from the Salvi store located in West Los Angeles, CA.

LEVER WIRES AND PROFESSIONAL LEVER WIRES:
Bow Brand Professional Lever Bass Wires are smaller in diameter and have a lighter tension then that of Bow Brand's Standard Lever Bass Wires. Each gives a different sound to those instruments using lever wires in the bass. The Standard Lever Wires tend to sound deep and ring longer than the Professional Lever Wires, which have a more clear, bright tone yet do not sustain their ring as long.

If you are unsure which lever wire to purchase, check with your harp maker, look on an old wire packet, or ask. We'll work it out.

WIRE STRINGS:
The Instrument Workshop, founded in 1969, has a diverse selection of wires which work perfectly for wire-strung harps, including yellow brass wire (brass music wire) available in small coils or singles.

DUSTY STRINGS GUT ALTERNATIVES:*
Strings specified on these gut alternative string charts have been carefully calculated by Dusty Strings. To avoid incorrect stringing or possible damage to your instrument, please purchase any gut stringing alternatives directly from Dusty Strings, or place an order with your local Dusty Strings harp dealer, such as HARP IN LA. Use of strings other than those specified in these string charts will invalidate any warranty and HARP IN LA cannot be held responsible for any damage that may occur to your instrument.

TRIPLETT HARPS STRINGS:
We have below string charts for the Triplett Harps models. The mono filament nylon gauge strings we carry for Dusty Strings harps will work for the Triplett. However, any of the wound or wires string you will need to purchase from Triplett Harps directly. Their phone number is (805) 544-2777.
