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. 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.
This 16 string lyre has exquisite craftsmanship and a lovely Ferris wheel design. This gorgeous instrument is light and portable, made with top-quality mahogany. Notes are engraved on top of the strings.
All of the lyres are pre-tuned in C major.
Although the lyre harp has been tuned when it leaves the manufacture, we will tune it again right before we ship out each order. Yet, the lyre harp tends to go slightly out of tune during shipping, which may require a little bit of adjustment before you play.
