Dusty Strings introduces knot tying alternative


Seattle-based harpmaker Dusty Strings has created a new product that provides an alternative to tying a traditional knot on the end of a harp string. The company’s new String Buttons are larger than a traditional string anchor, reusable, can be threaded in a simple pattern without tightly gripping or pinching, and make use of the mechanical power of the tuning pin to cinch down the knot.

“Though simple in concept, it became a longer quest than anyone anticipated to design a string anchor that would be friendly to the hands, easy on the brain, and hold fast without damaging the strings,” Dusty Strings explained in a press release.

The String Buttons work for lever- and folk-tension nylon and gut strings and for pedal-tension strings in the third octave and above. For more information, visit DStrings.link/stringbuttons.
