You can also puchase strings from other harp retailers.

OctavesStrings for all pedal harps are designated by octave number and note name (e.g. 3rd Octave E). Octaves run from an E string on top, down to an F string. The 1st Octave is the highest octave. (On some pedal harps there is a higher "Zero" Octave of 2 notes.) Middle C is in the 4th Octave.

Pedal harps are normally strung with the following string types:
Zero and 1st octave: nylon
2nd octave: either nylon or gut
3rd through 5th octave A: gut
5th octave G through 7th octave: bass wires
