      Threaded Harp Tuning Pin



      Threaded Harp Pin.

      3 inches long

      Holes should be drilled with a size D drill bit. (This is an odd size bit and not readily found at most local hardware stores so it might be a good idea to buy one from us!)

      This is the tuning pin that comes standard on all of our harps.

      Don't forget the Tuning Wrench for Harp Pins.

      threaded harp pin specs

      NOTE: If you should accidentally drill the holes too large for your threaded harp pins and the don't fit - you can install tapered harp pins. You'll need to ream out the holes with a #5 tapered reamer.

      It's a tuning pin! It's threaded! (And that's good.)
      Seriously, it's a threaded tuning pin. Good quality, exactly as described. I've ordered these twice - three to replace the tapered cello-style pegs (What a pain to tune with!) on my symphonie and twenty-five to replace the bog-standard tapered pins on my Witcher Trondheim harp. (I used the D-sized bit, also from Musicmakers, for both applications.) For the symphonie, I had to drill another string hole through the key-end of the shaft on one of the tuning pins; slowly with a good bit and some cutting oil, it worked fine. These are much better than tapered tuning pins. If you're building or restoring a harp (or symphonie!) you should consider using these. Note 1: Initial installation takes longer than for tapered pins, because each pin must be screwed into the hole, rather than just press-fit. The fine threads require thirty to fifty rotations, depending on the thickness of the wood. I used a ratchet with a 5.5mm 12-pt socket. Note 2: The (kind of scary) statement on the product page (at this writing) that if you make a mistake, you can ream the hole for a tapered pin makes little sense to me. The tapered pin holes on the Trondheim were *smaller* than the D-sized drill bit used for these threaded pins. (Granted, this is a singular datum, but there it is.) Plus, there are ways to deal with an oversized hole, from shims to fill-and-redrill.
