20090622_leier_2_100Tenor alto lyre

42 strings, range f“ – C
Body = 63cm x 50cm

The tenor alto lyre is of the same craftsmanship, but has 4 additional strings in the lower range, down to C (cello C). Due to its extended gamut, both the alto and tenor range are contained in just one instrument.

This model produces a resonant, full-bodied and carrying tone and is particularly suited for demanding musicians and solo performers. The surface is treated with open pore violin lacquer of particularly high quality and, at an extra charge, this model can be ordered with a highly polished shellac hand finishing. The lyre body can be made of the following woods: maple, ash, cherry, elm or pear, and is available in 1st class wood or in simple textured wood.
