Childrens Pentatonic or carved (open) Lyres

these 7-string Pentatonic Lyres are tuned d'-e'-g'-a'-b'-d''-e'' for younger children.
Hand carved out of a single piece of hardwood, with sweeping hollows linking front and back, they have a gentle tone promoting listening faculties.

Resonated version is also available, made on the same principle as the Harmony Handlyre, usually in elm wood.
