All of our lyres are made of one piece of wood, selected for resonance, with no defects and structurally solid.

This particular instrument is made of European Ash wood. Ash is often used for solid body musical instruments. The natural resonance of the wood results in a balanced tone that is sweet sounding, for defined lower notes to clear high notes.
The heartwood of some Ash trees has nice dark-on-light stripes that resemble Olive wood. We use mostly this part of the timber that is not only beautiful but also dense and strong, which helps with the resonance of the instrument and the rigidity against the string tension.

After we give the wood a general shape we achieve the unique texture of the instrument by carving all its surface with small radius gouges.
We finish the instrument with a few coats of Shellac. We use natural colored shellac for our ash instruments which ads a yellow – orange layer of color to the brown hues of the wood.
Naturally, wood grain and color vary with each instrument, each one being unique.
We use only high quality parts. The tuning pegs, tuning keys and strings are made in Germany.
