1. As the diameter of the strings may vary depending on the kantele model, it’s usually best to order extra strings directly from the kantele builder.   You can also measure the string’s diameter with the micrometer.
2. The spare strings usually come with a prefabricated loop.  Loops can look different, depending on the brand (and the period the kantele was built.   )
3. Place the loop under the metal bar and thread the string through it.  (If your kantele has pins instead of a metal bar, look at the other strings to see which way the loop should go around the pin.)
4. Turn the tuning peg upwards three whole rounds, so that it doesn’t move down too low when setting the new string into place.
5. Thread the string through the hole in the tuning peg and cut off the extra wire about 5 cm from the peg.
6. Fold back the very end of the string and make a 90-degree angle to it (preventing the string from sliding off the peg.)
7. Screw the tuning peg clockwise and guide the string evenly along the round part of the peg (not on the upper square part).
8. Leave the last round of the string a little apart from the other rounds, so that the vibrating part doesn’t touch them.  This prevents irritating string noise.
9. Make sure the string is in its place on the metal bar before you tighten the string all the way.
10. Also check the level of the string in relation to the other strings.  All strings should be at the same level.
11.  Press the loop against the metal bar. After that, you can tune the string.   (The new string will stretch for a while in the beginning, so you’ll have to tune it several times at first.)

How To Change The String on a 5-15 String Kantele

  • 1. 1. As the diameter of the strings may vary depending on the kantele model, it’s usually best to order extra strings directly from the kantele builder. You can also measure the string’s diameter with the micrometer.
  • 2. 2. The spare strings usually come with a prefabricated loop. Loops can look different, depending on the brand (and the period the kantele was built.  )
  • 3. 3. Place the loop under the metal bar and thread the string through it. (If your kantele has pins instead of a metal bar, look at the other strings to see which way the loop should go around the pin.)
  • 4. 4. Turn the tuning peg upwards three whole rounds, so that it doesn’t move down too low when setting the new string into place.
  • 5. 5. Thread the string through the hole in the tuning peg and cut off the extra wire about 5 cm from the peg.
  • 6. 6. Fold back the very end of the string and make a 90-degree angle to it (preventing the string from sliding off the peg.)
  • 7. 7. Screw the tuning peg clockwise and guide the string evenly along the round part of the peg (not on the upper square part).
  • 8. 8. Leave the last round of the string a little apart from the other rounds, so that the vibrating part doesn’t touch them. This prevents irritating string noise.
  • 9. 9. Make sure the string is in its place on the metal bar before you tighten the string all the way.
  • 10. 10. Also check the level of the string in relation to the other strings. All strings should be at the same level.
  • 11. 11. Press the loop against the metal bar. After that, you can tune the string. (The new string will stretch for a while in the beginning, so you’ll have to tune it several times at first.)
