    Has anyone tried the new Premiere pedal harp gut strings? They’re made in France and are being carried by Virginia and Atlanta Harp Centers. I wonder how they compare to Bow Brand and the now-defunct Vanderbilt pedal gut strings in terms of longevity and tonal quality.

    • Jerusha, I have tried these strings and find them to be wonderful. They aren’t covered in the same slick material as the Bow Brand and have similar traction to the old Vanderbilt strings. I thought the resonance was equal to Bow Brand as well. I switched after playing them!
