    I string my harps to the top in gut strings, but am considering changing

    Yes, it will, but it might not be too bad. If you can get a regulation after the change, that would be ideal.

    If the new strings are close to the same diameter, it shouldn’t cause any change. Regulating a harp with old strings in the first and second octaves, particularly old nylon strings can cause problems, because the old nylons in all likelihood have pits in the string where the disc closes on it. Once you change the string, the new string is much thicker because it has no pit in it.
