String charts
For Trinity College or Queen Mary harp replicas, I am now recommending a 2-metal set up, in brass & silver, with the sisters at middle c'. You can download free my new Trinity & Queen Mary stringchart (PDF). (update Nov 2017, Queen Mary harp measurements and tuning indicated)
My string charts for the HHSI Student harps (Castle Otway, Downhill, Mullaghmast, and Lamont) are available for download via the Members Area of the HHSI website.
If your harp is not one of the above models, or if it differs significntly from the measurements in these charts, I can make an analysis of your string lengths and set out a recommended stringing and tuning regime for your harp. The cost is £20 for one analysis and string chart. Please send me a complete list of string lengths, from pin to shoe, measured in centimeters.
You can order the wire for your harp on my wire page

Plans and technical drawings. I have made a page gathering information about where to get plans and technical drawings to help you make a harp in the old Gaelic tradition. Click here for more info.
