Replacement Strings for Sligo Harps


Broken String?  Do you need to restring the whole instrument?  I try to carry an inventory of strings for local harpists, but I have found it is difficult to match the efficiency or prices harpists can get by purchasing their strings directly though my vendors.  In other words, I would be happy to help you with a replacement for a broken string, but in many cases you will probably get the string more quickly if you order it directly from the vendor. Below you will find the string specifications for my four most popular models along with contact information for the suppliers and a web page tutorial describing how to tie knots for monofilament strings.
