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.
