New model lyres  for 2019/20

My new Cedar top and Maple lyres are now available to order direct through etsy.com,  These warm sounding models with wood decoration on arms sound as good as the more decorated models but are available within 2-3 months.  These Cedar topped lyres combined with Fluorocarbon strings provide a versatile toolkit to explore different tunings and pitches.    These feature the same hide glued tops as my more expensive lyres but have a machine routed body from a solid plank.  Wooden pegs as standard,  harp pins or gut strings also optional.  The plans this model is based on the Sutton Hoo shape,  found on the 2016 Lyre making DVD   a simpler version is available as a lyre kit
