Hello! I have a little zither, and it looks like it's strung with piano wire. It makes a really nice bell-like sound. I was thinking about stringing my harp with piano wire too, cause I really like the tone of the zither. It's a wire harp. Can anyone tell me if the tension would be okay to do this? I don't want to break the harp!

Also, does anyone have a good suggestion for a beginner book for wire harping? I have one for a regular nylon harp, but some of the stuff isn't applicable. (It's a Celtic-style harp)

Thanks! Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!

Jen
