"There are other harp string makers/sellers, but Laurie is the one I have the most and best experience with. She has a computer program where you send her the list of the harp string lengths, and she inputs it and it spills out the harp
string gauges and pitches for a coherent stringing. You can tell her 'I want it the same range it was to begin with' or you can tell her to let the program set its own optimum." 
Jaye in California

"Your harp will sound the best it can with high quality, tightly and evenly wound Markwood harp strings."


Finest Quality Harp Strings

Since 1992 we have specialized in fine quality harp strings for all models of lever harps. Our uniquely designed string winding machine stretches the core of our harp strings, as well as the wrap, resulting in tightly and evenly wound, high quality harp strings.

We have more than 1500 harp string charts on file.  This includes lever harp, folk harp, Celtic harp, Irish harp, historical harp, Scottish harp, Welsh harp, Gothic harp, lap harps, therapy harp and healing harps, wire strung harp, bronze strung harp, nylon strung harp, double strung harp, cross strung harp, and antique pedal harps.  If we have your harp in our computer files, you can call, and specify maker, model, and string number.  We'll have the gauges and vibrating lengths on our chart.

If we don't have your particular harp model we will use our computer string program to design a harp string set specifically for you.

We enjoy designing  harp strings for the best sound and feel your harp can have, and problem solving for breakage. Whether you would like low tension, medium tension, high tension we design strings to fit your needs and your folk or lever harp.

Here is what our clients are saying:

"Thanks Laurie!  I appreciate how quickly you met my needs and answered my questions.  You will ALWAYS get my harp string orders."  Patti, Ohio

"The harp strings are great! The bass strings have a wonderful tension without feeling hard. The nylon strings, particularly the higher ones give a sweet crystal like sound. I don't know if I'm just imaging things, but it seems that your strings allow for a very accurate tuning." Leontine in Greece

"Hello Laurie, You've got one more happy customer!!! The sound is great. Best wishes, Manfred"

"Hi Laurie!  I am thrilled with the harp strings, and your service is outstanding. Thanks, Jason"


Computerized Harp Stringing Analysis

Computerized Harp Stringing Analysis is one of the unique services we offer. There are a lot of physics that goes into harp string selection.  Many harpmakers, and players, come to us.

With this service, you tell us the vibrating lengths and the note range of the harp, we input this into the computer which provides guidelines for designing gauges and material that are appropriate for your harp. Using our computerized harp string design analysis program, we design strings that will give you the sound and feel that you desire.

We specialize in harp string problem solving. If you are experiencing excessive string breakage, or feel that some of the strings on your harp are too soft, in tension, or too taut, we can help. We have experience redesigning strings for harps that have been damaged and repaired. Our experience in designing custom harps with gut, nylon, or bronze strings, has taught us a great deal about what type of string material and string tension will sound and feel good, on different kinds of harps.

Please e-mail us, or click here, for a Computerized Harp Stringing Analysis form.

Computerized Harp Stringing Analysis $15.    Cross strung harps, pedal harps, and other instruments $20.
