The wood is a strong birch laminate (shown) and comes with the beautiful Sam Irwin Lyres standard silk finish.

Student 30-string

This lyre has been specially designed to allow students access the string layout of the full lyre. This is a major advantage because it means parents do not have to commit to larger and more expensive instruments outside their price range while the child progresses. The light, sweet tone is a joy to listen to.

 

The wood is a strong birch laminate and comes with the beautiful Sam Irwin Lyres standard silk finish.

 

Chromatic tuning: G - C’’

 

Price: £650
