for Serious Autoharpists
is not an easy instrument to go shopping for. Fortunately, I found
some great places to buy autoharp accessoires online from cases to
strings, tuners to tuning wrenches. If there's something missing,
please feel free to let me know, and I'll see if I can find a great
deal on 'em.
- Music123 through Amazon.com : Full-set of autoharp strings at about 30% off the list price. No individual strings, but a good deal for your backup set of strings.
- Autoharp Quarterly : Lots of individual strings. This is where I go for mine.
- Bob Lewis' Autoharp Works : He offers single strings too, they're just not easy to get to. Head to his website for further details.
- Elderly Instruments : Elderly sells single autoharp strings too for a lower price than Autoharp Works, but not if ye need them asap.
KORG - CA20 :
Chromatic guitar tuner. My tuner of choice since 1999. Low cost,
