Dusty Harp Tool Kit

You can do your own harp regulations!


This handy custom kit of tools lets every dusty harp owner manage all their harp adjusting needs - from replacing strings and lever cams to regulating Loveland sharping levers. Slip it into your harp case pocket along with your tuning wrench, and have everything right there to replace a string or tighten a lever. This kit is created for Dusty harps built after early 2001 which have hexagonal, threaded bridge pins and Loveland levers. With these custom-designed tools and the included instructions, regulation and lever adjustments are within easy reach of any handy person wishing for a new level of independence. Note: it has instructions for working with round bridge pins as well, but does not include any tools for adjusting them.

This is a complete, compact and comfortable-to-use regulation kit, but don't let the price tag deter you from attempting your own regulations! The basic tools can be found at most hardware stores or on our website, and the instruction booklet is also available separately (see below).

Tool Kit includes:

  • Turned hardwood handle with magnetic hex tip, which holds four custom tools used to adjust bridge pins and Loveland lever screws
  • Combination pliers and snips for removing broken strings and cutting string ends
  • ¼" open end wrench for adjusting and replacing lever cams
  • Soft brush for keeping hardware clean and dust-free
  • Starter supply of string splines, leather washers and eyelets
  • Zippered, microfiber clutch to keep it all organized and secure
  • Loveland Sharping Lever Installation, Regulation & Adjustment booklet
