    Does anyone know whether there is a 'clip on' Lyre available that i can use on my Prestige Euph?

    As many of you will know, the Pestige doesn't have a lyre box and I don't really want to have one fitted if i can help it. Any other suggestions would be most welcome.

    regards,

    Speak to Shawn Pagington at First Brass, he has somethings like that in.

    Cheers

    I just recently bought the new prestige euph and what came with mine was a screw on clip with a lyre box attatched. I was impressed it was included until i found out it did not fit anywhwere on my euph haha. But speaking to Glynn Williams he suggested i had one fitted by him which would be top quality and would look like it came out of the factory. Like you i dont really want one fitted but with Whit walks i suppose it may be the only way as there seems to be no alternative :(

    You could always get a Trombone Lyre that clips onto the Mouthpiece?

    Thomann have the clip on lyre box in a number of sizes, perhaps they have one that will fit better?

    We had a lyre box fitted to a euph and it just didn't stay on. All we got in the end was a big grey patch on the euph and still no lyre box.

    I just leave my prestige at home, and borrow one of the band's spare sov's, but I suppose everyone doesn't have that option!

    Hi Neil,

    I had one from a company on isle of man (i think - one of the isles anyway!)
    It was a flute/piccolo lyre that fitted around the 1st valve slide pipe. I had to pad it out a bit with a bit of cotton wool but otherwise it was great! Then you can fit your actual lyre stand easier that if you got a clip on one. I'll try and find you a link to the page.
    Otherwise getting on soldered on is a good idea - I've got a modified sov with a trigger now and a lyre box has been fitted onto 1st valve slide. Looks ok and does the job too!

    These aren't the same as what I had - but some potentials on here!
    Mine was literally like a washer/ring with a hinge that had a lyre box attached. I know what I mean but can't describe it very well!

    Seriously, the trombone lyre on there will do you, clips onto the mouthpiece and goes out in a straight line. No need for a lyre box be it clip on or soldered.

    Also, with Bill Lewington, they only do wholesale so you have to order it through a shop that they have a contract with and hope that they can put it with another order so that they don't charge you for carriage.

    Thanks for the replies. I've managed to source a clip on lyre box which i'll be testing when it arrives. HB, i tried the trombone lyre option, it does work but it feels just a little close to my face for comfort - i feel like i'm going cross eyed. It's a useful standby though if the clip on box turns out to be useless.

    Thanks once again.
