Salvi Lever Harp Strings

Salvi Lever Harp Strings

Strings for lever harps made by Salvi Harps, are designated by octave number and note name (e.g. 3rd Octave E), as they are on pedal harps. Octaves run from an E string on top, down to an F string. The highest note on lever harps is in the 1st Octave. Middle C is in the 4th Octave. The lowest note on most Salvi lever harps is in the 6th octave.


All of our nylon, gut, and lever and pedal wire strings listed on this page are made by Bow Brand Strings. All C strings are red and all F strings are black.

Pedal Nylon, Bow Brand Pedal Gut or *Burgundy Pedal Gut, and Lever Wires

*Our Burgundy Pedal Gut Strings are lower in price than the standard Bow Brand Pedal Gut Strings, due to slight imperfections in appearance. (The word “Burgundy” does not refer to the color of the strings, it is a brand name.)
