  • We can provide you with all hardware & strings necessary to build your harp (not including wood, PVC pipe, glues, finishes, etc.)
  • Note: These plans are offered in their as-is, original & historic format. Some easy, linear extrapolation of the templates may be required at a few points. See our notice here.


For plans for the traditional John Kovac 22, 29 & 36 String Paraguayan-style folk harps, see his classic, DIY harp-making book, Harpmaking Made Simple.

Go to Davy's Harp Resources Page to see a list of Materials, Tools & Strings necessary to complete each of these harps. Also, see other necessary harp resources at this same link.

If you make a mistake on your Kovac harp creation, even if not caused by us, please, notify us right away and we will see how we can help you to complete your harp anyway. You never know how we might be able to help you, which is our goal; for you to be successful in your harp building & playing! We won't abandon you in your harp building process after the purchase, either. Let's work together!
