Roosebeck Sharpening Lever Rivet 2-pole 4-pack
Sharpening Lever, Rivet 2 Pole 4 pk (Item Code: LVER-D) Pack of 4 Replacement Rivet-pivot, double pole narrow sharpening levers with shiny finish for harps. The Lever has a riveted arm that lifts to change the note of the string from the natural note to the sharp. The rivet holds the arm, but is not adjustable for tension. When the lever is down it is free of the strings. When the lever is in the up position, it is engaging the strings. These have a grooved double pole mechanism, usually used for longer and heavier strings. Measure your existing levers carefully to match the size. With the lever in the down position, measure from the anchor plate of the lever (the part screwed to the harp) to the poles. The distance to the closer, bottom pole is 9 mm. The distance to the further, upper pole is 19 mm. The over all length of the lever in the down position is 1 11/16 inches (43 mm). The length of the pole itself is 5 mm. The amount of lift, can be adjusted by pulling or pushing the bridge pin in by a 1/16 of an inch. This changes the point at which the string is engaged by the pole. You can also loosen the screw holding the lever to the harp and move the lever up or down. Again, by only a 1/16 of an inch at a time; very minor changes will have profound effects on the string's notes. You need to supply your own 5/8 inch wood screw to attach the lever; available at most hardware stores.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STRINGS:
There is no warranty on strings. Manufacturers recommend that you change the strings on your instrument as soon as you receive it. Your instrument has completed a long journey before it ever begins the final leg to your home. During this time the elements affect the strings and may shorten their lifespan. It occasionally happens that a string will fail during that final leg of the journey. Therefore, it is recommended that you purchase a replacement set of strings and consider changing your strings soon after it arrives. If you are a student you may want to change your strings every 3-4 months. If you are a rock star you may need to change your strings every week. If you store your instrument, you should consider changing the strings when you pick it up again.
For safety during shipping, the manufacturer don't tune the instruments before sending them to customers.
