The Seasons Lyre is a 13-string instrument that is tuned in the diatonic (regular seven-note) scale. This offers an extended note range over the pentatonic versions, giving a greater repertoire of possibilities in a single instrument.
Ergonomically shaped to be stable on one’s lap, all the strings can be reached by both hands while the lyre is balanced on the wrists. The Seasons Lyre is responsive to the player's touch and, thus, requires less effort to evoke the instrument's great potential.
This lyre was designed to create consonance between the organic form and the dynamic sound. The rounded form has an expansive, full-bodied, moving, modulated tone.
As with all of our lyres the strings are suspended in perfect balance to the soundboard.
This lyre is recommended for older children or adults, and requires more skill to play than our pentatonic lyres.
