23 String Chromatic Lyre, tuned G-F Size: 19.5" tall by 10.75" wide, Weight: 2.25 lbs. Strings are steel, with a ball end. String spacing is in general 0.5" apart at the bridges*, grouped like a piano keyboard, bi-level, tapering out towards the top to 0.75". Since the grouping does follow the piano layout, there are slightly larger spacing to delineate four groups. Since the strings are arranged in two levels, aggregate spacing is approximately 0.25". It appears that the instrument needs to be played with both hands, one hand per bridge group, on each side of the lyre. PSA027   $665.00

Nevel Lyre Harp with case Very loud biblical harp, 26", 15 nylon strings for the biblical scale. Featuring DuPont hard nylon strings. Includes case and tuning tool. According to Greek mythology, Hermes created a lyre-like instrument from the shell of a large tortoise. He stretched animal hide over the shell opening and attached antelope horns as posts. A similar instrument with a skin soundboard called the baganna, is a large eight or ten-string lyre, made of a trapezoidal wooden frame fitted with a skin soundboard. Some believe this is the instrument King David played to temper the ravings of King Saul. The baganna's bass vibrations are said to bring peace to the soul. The instrument, associated with the Ethiopian Coptic Church since the 4th century, was played primarily at Christmas and Lent. SPECIAL NOTE: No Warranty on Strings. PSA032   $287.10
