Soprano Lyre

Soprano Lyre is a good choice for beginners as well as players who seek a light-weight and easily portable instrument. The shape is designed to allow comfortable holding and despite its small size it has very good accoustic properties. It excels with clear and bright trebles, yet the range still extends down to the bass register with softer and warmer sound, enhancing the posibilities of the instrument. The Soprano Lyre is well balanced instrument with a pleasant, typical lyre sound in its whole range.

45 strings - range G# - e’’’
Typical timber selection: spruce / maple, ash

Solo Lyre

Solo Lyre is a well-proven instrument with clear and balanced sound that is strong enough even for solo performances. Although the lyre relatively light and easily portable, its range reaches full four octaves, which is unprecedented among lyres of similar proportions. It combines the advantages of soprano and alto lyres in one instrument and even exceed the capabilities of a guitar in terms of range. The acoustic properties in the middle and high registers are comparable even with some concert instruments. Solo Lyre is a good option for lyre players who mean it seriously.
