Description

This is our latest instrument, with an extended range of 12 strings, diatonic tuning (c’ to g”): c’-d’-e’-f’-g’-a’-h’-c”-d”-e”-f”-g”/ do’, re’, mi’, fa’, sol’, la’, si’, do”, re”, mi”, fa”, sol”.
You can naturally vary the tuning of the instrument within certain limits.

The diatonic lyre offers a wider choice of possibilities and is well suited for the introduction of the tonal music – major as well as minor tonalities. In other words, one can play almost any children’s songs, folk songs or other simple melodies with it. The joy of making music is supported by the bright and soothing sound and the intuitive playing technique.

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 Ash wood, 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.

This instrument is polished carefully to allow the natural colors of the wood to shine through.
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.
