Updates: We have just migrated our website and have some details to clean up, so please pardon the mess! We’d also like to ask for your patience if we are slower than usual to respond to orders, emails, and phone calls. We are still dealing with the challenges of operating a manufacturing business safely during COVID, and we are working with limited staff capacity. Thank you!
Custom made in red, blue and black, these small vinyl caps are designed to press over the ends of Loveland lever handles. The red and blue caps clearly mark your C and F strings and provide a strong visual reference that can be a real help in low-light situations. The black caps cover the rest of the levers for a consistent look and soft, grippy feel.
For harps with newer-style Loveland levers (you can tell because the red and blue dots are oblong on the new style vs. round on the old style), the lever caps are a very tight fit. It is possible to get them on, but be prepared for a bit of a struggle! You will likely need to warm up the caps until they are almost too hot to touch, which can be done by placing them under a hot lightbulb or microwaving them in a cup of water. This will make them more pliable. It also helps to moisten the inside so they slide on more easily.
Each package contains 33 black, 8 red and 8 blue caps - enough for a 40-string harp plus a few extras.
Note: We've tried these on both Loveland and Truitt levers with success. We've found they don't fit well on Camac levers because the handles vary in size.
