I’ve just changed two of the steel-core wound strings on my FH34 because the wire on both had broken where the lever touches the string, so the tuning was off when the lever was engaged. What I didn’t expect, though, is that now the whole harp sounds much better.
Which made me think it might be time to change all strings. I don’t know, though – the harp is only a year and a half old, so I would assume the strings are also only a year and a half old. I play on average for half an hour six times a week.
What do you experts think? And also, I’m planning to get it regulated, because some of the semitones aren’t semitones, does it matter if I change the strings before or after the regulation?
