Tuning a harp typically requires an electronic tuner, a clip-on tuner pickup and a tuning wrench (as well as a certain amount of coordination!). We do a lot of harp tuning at Dusty Strings and this awkward process was begging for an improvement. We've now combined our harp tuning wrench with the Snark clip-on electronic tuner to make a single handy tuning device, the Dusty Duo-Tune. Now you can pluck a string with one completely free hand while the tuning wrench and electronic tuner are in your other hand picking up the vibrations through the tuning pin, displaying the note on the attached LCD screen, and allowing you to adjust the pin - all at once. No more juggling tuners, wires, clips and wrenches and wishing you had three hands!
Note: It is possible to replace the Snark tuner head on an existing Duo-Tune, and we have reinforced heads available if anything happens to yours. The Snark tuner carries a 1-year warranty against defects in manufacturing.
There are three models of the Dusty Duo-Tune to fit different sized tuning pins. The size of the tuning pin that each wrench fits is engraved on the handle, but we realize most people don't have calipers readily available. So here is a list (to the best of our knowledge) of harp makers and the size of wrench we expect will fit their harps. Unfortunately, we can't make any guarantees, and current harps may not necessarily have the same tuning pins as older harps by the same maker. We do our best to add to this list when we get more information!
Note: Standard harp tuning pins go all the way through the neck of the harp and stick out on both sides. Some harps (Harpsicles are a good example) use zither pins instead, which only stick out on one side. Our harp tuning wrenches will not work well with zither pins, although our hammered dulcimer wrenches will!
