Lyre Harp

Gorgeous Mini Harp With Medieval Sound 

The lyre is a string instrument known for its use in Greek classical antiquity and later periods. The lyre is similar in appearance to a small harp but with distinct differences. The fundamental difference between a lyre and a harp is that in a harp, the strings enter directly into the hollow body of the instrument, whereas, on a lyre, the strings pass over a bridge, which transmits the vibrations of the strings to the body of the instrument – just as on a modern guitar.
In addition, most of the traditional harps use nylon strings, whereas lyre usually uses steel strings. This gorgeous instrument is light and portable, made with top-quality mahogany. Notes are engraved on top of the strings. Easy to learn, no musical background needed.
In terms of timbre, the lyre still has the ethereal and long-lasting tone of a harp, but it sounds more ancient with a Medieval deeper tone. The sound of steel strings adds a mysterious and unique beauty to this instrument.
