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 or a mix of these.  

VAVRA Harp is an authorized  Vanderbilt Music Company distributor and provide their top of the line Classic Gut or 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.  
Please visit Stock Harps (our store) where the upgrade pricing is shown in Options for each harp you select.

Our full sets come with String Ends and genuine leather String Anchors.

For individual strings, please visit Vanderbilt and tell them 'VAVRA Harp' sent you!   And, you may also have an interest in Vanderbilt and Lyra Publications. Check them out while you're there!

This table allows you to compare different types of strings with different harp models.  Most harps are designed for specific string sets based on material, tension, vibrating length, size and mass.  Experimenting with different strings to get a different sound or feel could be detrimental to your harp.  Every VAVRA Harp comes with a set of string charts showing various stringing and identifying each string and it's allowable replacements for type and diameter.
