Wood Selection for Lyre Making

We would like to introduce a newly designed Lyre in our workshop. We designed a new Lyre from the cherry tree grown in Turkey. This design is a 20 string Bass Lyre model.

Alternative trees will continue as pear, chestnut, walnut, mulberry, elm, linden and maple.

Best Tree For Lyre

In lyre making, we prefer fruit trees. There are two reasons for this, the first is the richness of the veins and patterns of the fruit trees and, accordingly, the difference and originality. The second reason is the efficiency of the acoustic result of the tree. For this reason, the choice of wood is very important for us in lyre making.

How To Make A Lyre

We make a one-piece instrument by carving the fruit tree. One of the tricks of lyre making is to make use of the techniques of other instruments. One of the common mistakes made in the world is the lack of strength of the lyre instrument. We find both high acoustic value and ancient sounds. For this, we work harder every day and make a universal contribution to the development of the lyre musical instrument.

The lyre cover should be cut from spruce wood with veins in a vertical direction. The covers of the musical instruments we produce in Luvi Atelier are 10 years old dried trees.

How To Make Easy Lyre

In order to make an Easy Lyre, sized and designed wood and wood materials are needed. Making a lyre without hand tools can be exhausting. As with every musical instrument, there is a lot of effort in the lyre instrument. You can find Lyre sold disassembled. You can’t get a good Lyre sound. A good lyre sound requires good mastery. You will need to refer to your physical and sound engineering knowledge to manipulate the tree.

Sounds long enough to meet the needs of ancient music, medieval European music and the Turkish music system, satisfying and generous bass and treble transitions are very important to us. What makes a musical instrument perfect is that its sound values ​​are in balance. If the bass and treble balances are good in a musical instrument, it is perfectly finished and revealed by the decision of a good producer. A perfect Lyre does not come about by chance, it is impossible.

Lyre Plans

You can find the Lyre plans we produce on our website. In the image below you can only see our new Lyre plan.

Cherry Wood Lyre Plan

Our cherry tree lyre plan was a hit this year. Pear and similar trees have a more patterned and stylish look than fantasy. It was also protected with shellac lacquer and oil.

If you are interested in lyre making, do not hesitate to contact us if you need a new lyre.

How Should A Lyre Twist Be?

The lyre auger must be made of hardwood. We, as Luvi Atelier, prefer Buginga rosewood. Since it is a hard and high-strength wood, it is a great advantage that it can be used for many years without any problems. Even if the wooden augers are broken or the slot is broken, it is very easy to repair again. One of the most important steps for lyre instrument building knowledge is the choice of auger, soundboard, sill and string. The correct materials must be completed in order.
