The lyre is a string instrument known for its use in classical Greek 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. In terms of timbre, the lyre still has the ethereal and long-lasting tone, but it sounds more ancient with a Medieval deeper tone. The sound of steel strings adds a mysterious and unique beauty to this instrument.
This 19 string lyre has exquisite craftsmanship and a beautiful reindeer design, and this gorgeous instrument is light and portable, made with top-quality mahogany. Notes are engraved on top of the strings.
This Lyre harp is pre-tuned to C major.
Although the lyre harp has been tuned when it leaves the manufacture, we will tune it again right before shipping out each order. Yet, the harp instrument tends to go slightly out of tune during shipping, which may require a little bit of adjustment before you play.

A very special piece to be handed down through the generations. Beautifully made and lovely sound. Comes complete with carry bag.
I purchased this beautiful Lyre Harp and stand. Arrived less than 2 wks time in perfect packaging and top working order. I play it everyday and it gives me so much joy. I play the piano and never touched a string instrument before. After 2 wks got familiar with the strings and now I'm able to play songs that I only played on my piano. It's beautiful and entertaining. Many thanks to Little Kalimba shop.
