Leier player: Shion
[Fukuoka leier class of Shion] opened

[Original leier developed in Japan]
Although it was born in Germany, there are workshops that are also manufactured in Japan. I'll buy a leier! At that time, I was at a loss and thought that I must be able to understand something if I was born in Japan, so I decided on "Aphrodite's leier" by Tonewood Kobo in Aichi Prefecture. A Japanese-style tone with Japanese essence added to traditional lyre. It took about half a year to make it carefully 😊

From Hanane's blog [Aphrodite's lyre egg and angel]

I was thinking about sending an instrument to Tonewood of the musical instrument studio for the maintenance of the egg, and when I asked him a little story, I found it just right.


Don't make excuses ... (-.-;


We returned the single plate lyre egg to the shop and welcomed a new type.

A white lyre, a lyre named Angel. The feather-shaped sound hole is very cute. It is a box type and the loudness and sound are very good. You can hear each sound in various ways depending on how you play.

For sparkling sounds and pawns and mellow sounds.


The same is true for other harps and lyres, but the sound is so loud that you may feel the difference in sound depending on how you play.


When I first saw the angel, it looked like a sugar decoration on a cake. A delicate impression that seems to break if you touch it.

However, if you actually touch it, it has a strong presence and the sound is quite loud among the soprano lyres.

I have a nice instrument at home, so I want to practice a lot, but it's frustrating that I can't take a long time. However, it is a loose practice.

There is no # 100 in the angel, and # 65 is the finest.

・ Leier


It's been about three months since the new shiny leier came to my house.


After playing the lyre for the past few days, I suddenly noticed that the tone had already changed from when I first played it.

The new sparkling sound is nice, but I seem to like the slightly calmer and mellow sound.

Is it due to the way you play the strings, is it a change in the strings (I think that even if you wipe it every time, there is a slight rust on it, and it should be stretched), or is the condition of the tree getting used to it? ?? I don't have any knowledge, so I'm looking at the instrument while wondering.


When I feel the existence of an instrument that grows with me, I feel more attached to it. The sound of the new instrument is very popular with my mother and it sounds much better than before! !! Will say.

I think it sounds pretty good before! !!


Now that I'm used to my ears, the lyre is the same model as before and now (Aphrodite's lyre angel), but you can feel the difference in sound more.


Anyway, a new angel who feels like singing very well. Play more-play- ♪ I feel like I'm singing-I'm singing these days.
