Schreiber Autoharp Strings - Same Strings, New Name
Fladmark Autoharp Strings, the gold standard in autoharp strings, widely available from luthiers and autoharp supplies retailers, has a new name.
Master autoharp luthier Tom Fladmark has passed the string-making baton to fellow master autoharp luthier Greg Schreiber, and going forward these strings will be sold as Schreiber Autoharp Strings - new name, same unmatched quality you've come to expect.
If you know of an autoharp resource that should be listed on this page, please contact Lindsay at firstname.lastname@example.org. Links on this page are free, and are published here at my discretion, usually these days at the request of the linkee.

* * Who is King of the Autoharp * *
According to a number of authoritative and reputable sources, Charles Whitmer is currently the reigning King of the Autoharp. This coronation was by unanimous decision of the Autoharp Board of Authorities, duly convened and in official session on July 8, 2020. The former reigning sovereign, Jo Ann Smith, graciously abdicated to allow the honor to be shared and appreciated by a larger audience.
