Note on the strings used:

For most of the harp models you can choose from two types – with original strings or with guitar strings.

– The original strings provide an optimal tone, but they are redeemed with higher price.
Guitar strings can be a good substitute for original strings for small ones and some folk harps, especially for good tone quality, easy accessibility and low price.
