The specially constructed solid wood lyre with the characteristic notch in the bottom gives an especially balanced tone. Two bridges made out of hardwood and brass ensure a harmonic progression between the high and low strings.

Due to the many strings, the LDP lyre can be tuned into various chords or Bordun scales. In this case, you strum all the strings together to hear the entire chord ringing; is used to accompany a melody that is sung or played on another instrument.

If you have more than one lyre in a group, they can be tuned into different chords so that you can accompany a song with as many chords as you have differently-tuned lyres.
