Harps are generally tuned to a diatonic scale, like the white keys on a piano.

Depending on the music you play, you may choose a different tuning.  Wikipedia shows over fifty musical scales and modes that accommodate different music styles; pick one and we’ll fit your harp with the range of strings and tuning you prefer.
