Choroi Bordun Lyre - 16 string - wood: mahagony
trä, 44x24,5x5,5 cm, 16 strängar
The Bordun Lyre is a very versatile instrument created primarily for use in groups. Tuned to chords, it provides opportunity for simple harmonic improvisations or song accompaniments. The strings are arranged in a crossing pattern (bass and "melody" strings), facilitating, on the one hand, differentiations of dark and light sounds, but also melodies in various scales with drone accompaniment.
16 steel strings in a crossing pattern. All strings can be re-tuned within the range of a fourth (a minor third up or down) from the basic tuning.
treble strings: d'-e'-f#'-g'-a'-b'-c#''-d''-e''-f#''-g''
bass (drone) strings: d-a-a-d'-d'-d'
The Choroi lyres and harps were created through a striving for a characteristic, radiant tone deriving its intensity from the properties of the different types of wood used in their construction. Through carefully formed "organs" inside the instruments, these qualities of the wood are brought into connection with the resonating instrument cavity. Variously shaped sound openings mediate between this inner space and the space around the instrument. Through this interaction, a mobile equilibrium arises, giving the tone a living quality.
All the instruments are built with the highest quality craftsmanship from naturally colored, carefully aged wood. In our striving for a beautiful finish, we work with traditional methods, including the use of natural resins and hand polishing.
