Lynda Lyre with Levers

This is the levered version of the Lynda Lyre. There are three primary differences between this model and the Lynda Lyre without Levers:

  1. This model comes with a full set of installed Universal Levers.
  2. This model uses threaded harp pins. This means that, from the player's position, you would be tuning the Lyre with on the left side.
  3. It is about 3 pounds heavier. This model weighs 7 pounds. The non-levered model weighs 4 pounds.

Lyres were one of the first stringed musical instruments and have been used by musicians and healers continually for centuries. It was the most well know musical instument in Ancient Greece and continues to have a broad appeal. The Musicmakers Lyre is a modern take on this ancient musical instrument.

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.

I am still getting acquainted with this delightful instrument, but it definitely lives up to my expectations so far. The sound is exceptional for such a small instrument, the range is just right, and it is very portable. Thank you for another great instrument!
