The spirit of building an instrument that anyone can play.
A challenge to produce new ideas to homemade guitars.

Lyre build

I must say from the beginning, I built the harp from an old picture.

I used 3 steel and 1 wrapped guitar strings i had laying around.

As for the height, it was to match this old photograph.

It does have a gentle sound with a Rozzoned Bow.

Not perfect, it's my first and the pleasure is all mine.

Isn't that what it all about?
