Need stand-alone kit hardware for your DIY harp?

Please note our shipping policy for all kit hardware:  S/H Policy

(Excludes ParaHarp Kits)

We carry all hardware necessary to build your harp that comes with all of our DIY kit harps. (If under a warranty claim, hardware will be supplied for free.) Dedicated hardware is sold in complete kits only.

For spare or extra parts not supplied in the kits, etc., we suggest you go to the nearest hardware or big box store for standard, easy to obtain, common hardware like supplemental screws, etc. 

Various Hardware types:

  • String Tuning Mechanisms, Left hand & Right-Hand w/Screws
  • (Standard Tuners or Economy* Tuners)
  • Grommets (Soundboard)
  • Plastic or Wood Beads
  • Various Infrastructure Screws
  • Post (Pillar) Screws
  • Rubber Feet & Screws
  • Brads   

Each Hardware Kit is designed specifically for the plans for each different harp. Your kit may be slightly different than shown but matches your harp.

* Please note: Economy tuners are not warranted.

Economy tuners typically experience an expected failure rate of 15% or more, on average, during the first months (or longer) after installation & use. They are far less expensive & easier to afford but require exacting installation & careful use. Economy tuners are provided especially for beginners on budgets. 

As necessary, over time, if a tuning mechanism drive gear gets damaged on your harp, you can use a spare tuner or buy a separate tuner mech and just use the parts from it like the drive gear alone. Economy tuner mechanisms are very quick and easy to change out if necessary.

We recommend using our Standard string tuning mechanisms, especially if this is your first harp project or if you are not mechanically inclined (regardless of how many years you may have worked with wood). Economy tuners can save some cost upfront but require much greater care in their installation and ongoing use. 

We provide a tuner care document to help you get the best out of your economy tuner purchase. See this link.

Some pictures show approximate typical kit components. 

NOTE: Electronic eTuners shown are sold separately.
