    I wonder if anyone can help...

    Discovered yesterday when I got to Remembrance day that I had lost half my lyre. Luckily it turned out that we weren't marching, and so I could play off a stand, but I'm due to go on a march on the 25th, and will need it then.

    I've still got the clippy bit, just not the long stick bit.

    Is it possible to buy just that (or has anyone got a spare one?!)

    :rolleyes:

    I want to avoid buying a new lyre as I seem to remember they're rather pricey.. :frown:

    I just use a Flute lyre for my Prestige, it just clamps onto the Euph- i'm sure they're probably around on the internet, not very expensive- hope that helps ;)
    Think the new model Prestige's may have lyre holders, but don't hold me to that!

    Ooh explain?? Only flute lyre I've seen is the wrist strap one. At the moment I have to borrow another instrument to march, wouldbe great to solve that problem!!

    Ah right so where do you clamp it onto on your instrument?

    Any of the tubing on the front of the instrument :) I just clamp it to wherever it ends up in my line of sight and hope for the best! :D Thing is I always worry about damaging the tubing, so I never really clamp it on excessively tight, but it seems to do it's job ;)

    Thanks - that is fab! are they easy to bend? (I am a weak and weedy female!!) :oops:

    I can't believe that I paid about £20 for a bent one last time!!

    I bent the ones I needed in the vice in my workshop, but I dont suppose you'll have a vice handy! Either go to your local car garage, or if you want to be rough, you could stick in between the door and the frame to clamp it that way and bend it.
