This smaller lyre, with no sound box is only pentatonically tuned, which allows a harmonious and free style of play. It is therefore ideal for beginners and especially suitable for children up to nine years of age.
The 7 String Carved Lyre is available in a variety of hard woods such as Cape Lilac or Sheoak, and finished with 'Livos' oil.
This instrument is suitable for children and adults. For younger children, we recommend that the third, seventh and tenth notes be silenced.
For these ages, neither minor nor major scales are suitable, but the "mood of the fifths" available in the pentatonic sequence (D, E, G, A and B) is recommended.
Eucalyptus pilularis, commonly known as Blackbutt, is a common and dominant tree of the family Myrtaceae native to southeastern Australia.
