HOW ARE YOU?

It's been just over a year since the purchase of your harp from HARP IN LA and you should have had your warranty regulation seen to by now. HILA would like to make sure all is good and going well for you and your harp.

ARE YOU PLAYING? ARE YOU TUNING?

The best service you can do for you and your harp is to regularly tune and play your instrument. Tuning and playing keeps your harp in tip-top shape; its sound will become more beautiful, its body will be able to flex and perform at its best and it will extend the life of your instrument.


If you are not playing or tuning your harp regularly, it's not too late - Get crackin'!

CHECK YOUR STRINGS:

Your harp arrived strung with Bow Brand's highest quality Standard brand gut strings. With age and play any brand of gut string needs to be replaced regularly.


Look at your harp's strings. If any seem worn, frayed or dirty, they may need to be replaced. You'll be amazed at how your tone can improve with good strings. Think about purchasing an extra set of strings for your harp, or at least a spare FACE set*.

BURGUNDY BRAND STRINGS

Bow Brand manufactures a lower cost alternative to their Standard Bow Brand gut strings called Burgundy. These strings are in fact Bow Brand Standard strings, which have been put aside for aesthetic reasons (pits, dust & bug particles, etc). Normally a third the cost of Bow Brand Standard, Burgundy strings are a fine option for students or for rental instruments.

*WHAT IS A FACE SET OF STRINGS?

IN WHICH YOU HAVE THE F, A, C, AND E STRING FOR EACH OCTAVE. IN A PINCH AN A CAN BE USED TO REPLACE THE A, G, OR B AND AN E CAN BE USED TO REPLACE THE E OR D. THE COLORED STRINGS ARE F AND C - THOSE CANNOT BE SWITCHED OUT - TOO CONFUSING!

INSURANCE: ARE YOU COVERED?

If your harp is not insured, see about adding it to your home owner's or renter's insurance policy. There are also instrument insurance plans available.
