Project Description

Lyre

Sounds like a little harp

The lyre is an easy to play string instrument in diatonic or pentatonic scale. It sounds like a little harp with a tender and quiet sound.
The lyre is made of an oval frame. The bottom is a closed soundbox and the top is an open playing surface. You play it while holding it in your arm.
