Strings for FH36S, FH36H or FH36B
We number our strings starting from the top, so #1 is the highest and shortest string. Please make sure you are ordering strings for the correct model of harp, as they are not interchangeable and are not returnable if you order the wrong ones. If you have any questions, please give us a call!
Note: We changed the design of our 36-string harps in mid-1991, and the string lengths changed as well. If your harp might be around that age, make sure it says FH36S, FH36H or FH36B on the sticker inside the harp. If the model name reads "FH36" without an S, H or B afterwards, you are on the wrong page! Instead, you should order strings for the FH36 Pre-1992.
Nylon or Gut?
If you don't know what type of strings are on your harp, they are most likely nylon. Our harps were designed for and come standard with nylon strings, whereas gut is a special option.
What if I have a string emergency?
Orders placed online are usually shipped by US Mail within 1 or 2 business days. If you have a deadline or would like us to look into expedited shipping options, please call and place your order over the phone. While overnight shipping is usually a possibility, the cost will likely be at least $50, even for a single string.
Shipping and handling costs can be found on our Shipping Costs page or by adding strings to your cart and entering your location.
Monofilament strings do not come with string anchors (splines or washers) included. If you're replacing a string, you can re-use the spline or washer from the broken string, or order our String Anchor Pack to have a stash of extras on hand. Wound strings already have washers attached.
A full string set contains enough material to restring the entire harp. The conversion gut set is for changing a nylon-strung harp to gut, and contains only the gut strings, which make up the middle range of the harp.
Please note that the full set contains fewer than 36 individual strings. Since one length of nylon can be used to string two or three of the higher notes on the harp, we have chosen to keep the cost of the string set down by including only the strings that you actually need to restring the harp.
