Lyre harps, also known as wire harps or Apollo harps, are modern instruments inspired by both ancient lyres and traditional harps. They offer a unique sound and playing experience, combining elements of both instruments. Here’s a breakdown of their key features:

Typically made of wood with a hollow sound chamber and a curved arm extending from the top.
The number of strings varies depending on the model, ranging from 6 to 18, usually made of nylon or steel.
Tuning methods differ with desired sound and playing style, with common options like diatonic, pentatonic, and chromatic.
Played by plucking the strings with fingers or a pick, either seated or standing.
Smaller sizes are available, offering convenient mobility for travel or practice.
