Product Details

This 22-string Lyre is four pounds of beautiful music, big enough to play both melodies and chords, and small enough to carry around and hold in your lap. Our goals with this instrument was to keep it easy enough for beginners to play, but not limited to a small range or incomplete scale.

(1) Finished Lynda Lyre
(1) Padded Gig Bag
(1) Tuning Wrench

Lyrical Collaboration

Meeting a Music Therapy Need

Lynda reached out to us in 2017 looking for a new instrument that she could use for her SoundWerk Certification Course. This started a back and forth that resulted in our Lynda Lyre.

Here a couple of videos demonstrating our lyres. This first one is from our friend, Nicolas Carter and features the wire strung instrument.

This second video shows Lynda (the lyre's name sake) demonstrating the nylon strung version.

Here is a video made by our friend Rene from Switzerland.

Verified Buyer
As a beginner I love this instrument. So beautifully built. The tone with the wire-strings is full, clear and warm. Taking the lyre harp with me for a walk, sitting under a tree and play music is no big deal because the instrument is so handy. Just love it. The space between the strings is a bit tight for my fingers but i'll manage this. So ...beautyfull instrument to have a lot of joy.
