Flip up accurate and adjustable Steel Sharping Levers with color caps (red for C and blue for F) as standard. These levers have good functionality using two points of contact for the lower and mid-range strings. This allows for the best string tonality when engaged. The base is made of steel for strength and rigidity, and the brown plastic handles having colored caps for easy identification. The resting pins on the levers are adjustable for regulation and to accommodate different string sizes and harp designs. Excellent levers at a very competitive price. This is an amazing development by Mikel Harps and Derwent Harps.
