HARP RESOURCES & WEB LINKS

Including Some of Davy C'S Favorite Links to the World of Harping & DIY :

Davy C's Kovac Harp Resources (Useful harp info including Harp Tuning, Kovac String Charts, Tying String Knots, etc.)

John Kovac Our Founder (Please, Subscribe on YouTube to keep updated & hit the Bell for notifications of new videos by John.)

American Paulownia Association We use Paulownia wood lumber, a truly Green, sustainable & easily renewable resource for our harps. It is truly a miracle wood as well as being a superb musical instrument tone wood.

This abundant, non-invasive species is great for the Environment & great for us, too! (Why don't you consider switching over from Spruce, which musical quality & availability is becoming harder & harder to find with its cost ever skyrocketing.)
