This Old World Lyre is modern production of one of the most ancient instruments. Order one with nylon strings for a mellow tone or get the wire strings if you are looking for a brighter, bell-like tone.
The design of this instrument is based primarily on the work of Spanish Luthier Juan Ramirez Vega. Juan did extensive research on the Iberic Lyre from 900BC. The version that Juan built will be presented in the Madrid University and the Zaragoza Museum.Great sound and look. Ready to play.
