A detachable clamp-on lyre box with a hinged ring available in various diameters from 16mm to 22mm. Suitable for most brass instruments as an alternative to a permanent retrofitted lyre box.
The 'lyre' is a small sheet music holder used by brass band and marching band musicians to hold printed parts whilst 'on the march'. Many brass instruments are equipped with a 'lyre box' with a tension screw to grip the lyre stem. For instruments without one, lyre boxes may be retrofitted (detachable or permanent) or a detachable lyre used (e.g. bell lyre). The stem may be bent to suit the player and most are a universal size to fit the majority of instruments.
