Individual Replacement, Nylon Harp Strings, for the Kovac 36 String Paraguayan Harp.

These strings are designated for the Kovac 36 String Paraguayan harp model based on its own note sequences. Refer to your harp's documentation or to our harp resources pages for specific model information.


Note: We do not supply strings for other harp makes & models.


String Specifications:

  • Treble Strings: Mono-filament Nylon1
  • Bass Nylon/Nylon Wrapped Strings
  • Colors: Clear, Red Cs, & Blue Fs (Specify if Blue Cs & Red Fs)
  • Please, see our suggested knot-tying document by John Kovac.


Notice: After creating your string knot, add a wooden, metal, or strong plastic crafter's string bead for non-slip strength before feeding the string through the soundboard & up to the Neck. Or, use a thick piece of nylon harp string within the knot in place of a bead.


To Order:

Choose the correct Kovac harp string Note, for each series of harps, from the pull-down menu on the product listings above. 

If you are uncertain of your string's specifications, follow the string size listings in your harp instructions or email us for help identifying your correct string at Contact Us.


Please note:  All wrapped bass strings are custom-made at the time of order & are not stocked. Please, allow for several extra weeks for strings to be created & shipped after placing your order. Only one, combined shipment will be made for all string sets & materials ordered at the same time.

Please take note: John Kovac's engineered string sizes were changed after publishing his various plans & Harpmaking Made Simple book (HMS), etc. We now supply the updated string sizes recommended by traditional Paraguayan harp makers from South America. 

So, please, ignore the obsolete string dimensions in the HMS book. Our string kits now contain the maker-recommended sizes.

(If you desire to use the sizes of the original strings, while we won't provide them, it is recommended you provide the string specifications to your other harp string maker for them to reproduce the original string parameters.)

We also send new-sized grommets meant to match the adjusted string parameters.
