​​With strings, it's the material, spacing, tension, and pluck (length to tension ratio).  We can install your preference of string material including GUT, METAL, NYLON, or CARBON.  

Your harp can be delivered with the nylon or wire strings that come with the Musicmakers hardware pack for each of their models. HOWEVER - we are an authorized  Vanderbilt Music Company distributor so you can opt to upgrade to their top of the line Classic Gut or Nylon strings.  

We also offer Vanderbilt Classic Gut, Nylon, and Bass Wire strings in full sets as replacement strings for harps we build.  You may request Bow Brand Gut, Bow Brand Concedo, and Burgundy Gut, Savarez Gut, Savarez Alliance KF (fluorocarbon), or Savarez Nylon strings; request a quote.  

The following table shows pricing for complete sets of replacement or 'spare' strings.
