    This set of 36 loop end strings fits older A-model Oscar Schmidt Autoharps (built before 1967).

    Replacing grommet-end strings on an A-model?  These work fine, just as strong. Made in the USA. Excellent quality.

NOTE: String ends on new and old A-Model harps slip over anchor pins at the wide end of the instrument. Pins are usually hidden under a plastic cover which must be removed or flipped up to change strings. 

For longest wear and best tone, string windings (strings 1F - 13C#) should be as long as possible without resting directly on the bridge at either end. Winding length on this set is optimized for older Oscar Schmidt models (built before 1967).  

String length on these older Autoharps is a little shorter than on the newer Oscar Schmidt OS73 Reissue Autoharps, thus the winding needs to be shorter as well. On older harps, the length of the 1F string from bridge to bridge is 18-1/2".  (This contrasts with 19" on the OS73.)

ALSO NOTE: Greg Schreiber has taken over Tom Fladmark's string making business.  We are grateful to Tom for his many years of fine work and to Greg for taking the job on!
