Harp Resources & Web Links

Links to Davy C'S Favorite Harp & DIY Woodworking Websites:

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

Maestro John G. Kovac our late Founder & Mentor (November 1945 - July 2022)

(Please, Subscribe on YouTube for all of John's historic videos.)

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.)
