I have begun to permanently stock HGM with strings, and the page is now up: Sub-bass Strings
I had to abandon the Newtone strings due to a corrosion problem, and I am exploring several options for a new custom string vendor.  Meanwhile, most gauges are well represented by John Pearse and D’Addario.

I have a few classical sub-basses listed as well, with a full range coming in the future. 

Needless to say, I would appreciate your business!

Tone- you'll have to get those Fender PBs from MF for now.  I'm working on getting some for HGM, so next time, thanks!  Ultimately, I hope to do a full compliment of custom PBs, but am looking for the right company.

I finally got around to putting together a standard Gibson Style U phosphor bronze set - in both John Pearse and D'Addario.  Plus all the individual gauges available as well (now .034" - .080", inclusive).  In stock now!
Thanks to Ben for suggesting and Mike Doolin for double-checking my calculations.

Also, the main string page now splits off into Steel or Nylon.

I added a "Standard" Dyer sub-bass set.  JP brand only, and the disclaimer says:

* This set is lighter than I would prefer; limited by currently available gauges

Currently this is the best option I believe, prompted by a new request from Don Alder (and many previous others)

For those tuning down to E or D, or builders creating extra outlandish instruments, I've started stocking D'Addario PB acoustic bass singles again (buying sets, and breaking up).  These are extra long scale, and have large ball end.  Gauges .045, .065, .080, .100 & .130
http://www.harpguitarmusic.com/strings-steel.htm#singles
P.S. I can't take much string stock to HGG7 - if you're thinking of picking anything up, it's always best to let me know in advance.

Just a heads up that I've got all the DA and JP phosphor bronze strings in stock, including the acoustic bass gauges.

Well, I haven't yet had even a glimpse of the new Andy McKee fan-fret Michael Greenfield harp guitar, but I've got his custom strings in stock.  These are for Bennett tuning for his scale length - 48" total length, 44" of wound section.  I figured there might be new luthiers out there building for longer bass strings....

For those of you with short scale nylon-string harp guitars, I've got a few sets in stock of Muriel Anderson's custom GHS set - the one designed for her Doolin.  Not available anywhere.

I'm also doing a closeout on the coated, colored DR strings, both wound and supers.

D’Addario String Sale!

Hey all - I am discontinuing D’Addario phosphor bronze strings  - as I am switching to a new Harp Guitar Music exclusive vendor (finally, after all these years!).

So I’m blowing out all D’Addario phosphor bronze stock (see web site).

Thought Forum readers should have first crack at remaining stock...

New upcoming strings will be the same quality as D’Addario or better.  Gauges and prices (lower) will be revealed in a couple weeks.

Thanks for your past, present and future business!
