Stringing
This page is for owners of a
DENWAR harp, but may also
be helpful to owners of other
harps..............
(This is a printable page)
A  string chart is an important tool for a harp owner....
without it you are "handicapped" when you break a
string and need re-placement. If you do not have a string
chart for your harp, contact the maker and insist on one.
If this fails: Send a piece of the broken string together
with length and color required to a string retailer. (below)
 
For DENWAR harp owners who have lost their string
charts.....you can order a string from the chart below ( for
all harps excepting: Denwar Harps prior to 1997  and
Classics prior to 31 June 2002......

For ALL string replacements go to one of the retailers
