Weasel So, what became of the lyre? (49) RE: So, what became of the lyre? 25 Apr 13


Just found this old thread which is strangely relevant to me at the moment!

I haven't seen a saxon lyre outside the realms of re-enactment and the other lyres seem to be museum pieces.

One of the problems of the lyre is its limited range of notes - the saxon lyre usually has only six strings.

I have built three lyres this week, two Anglo Saxon with six strings and one "folk lyre" with eight strings.

Cheers,

Weasel
