Lyres & Flip Folders
Whether you're in the rehearsal room or down in the orchestra pit, you know how important lyres and flip folders are to keeping your place in a musical piece - after all, most music that's played on brass and woodwind instruments is fairly intricate. Thankfully there's more than enough flip folders on today's market - and for those who want their music even closer to their vision, you'll find a wide variety of lyres to suit instruments ranging from trumpets and saxophones to clarinets and piccolos.
For those who don't know what a lyre is, they're a device that lets you attach a flip folder of music to an instrument. Obviously the right one for you will depend on what you play, but the Yamaha Sax Lyre will give you an excellent idea of what they're all about. Made from heavy-duty nickel plated brass and featuring an extra-firm spring for top-notch holding power, this best-selling sax lyre is solidly-built and a treat on the eyes. Another popular lyre in this section is the DEG A16-HC225 Flute/Piccolo Lyre. This super-sturdy model has a spring-loaded clip to easily flip through its 5 windows. It also eliminates glare, has no sharp edges and is fully adjustable.
After you choose a lyre for your instrument, be sure to pick up a flip folder (or two) as well. There are many choices here, including the Plasti-Folio Plastic Folio Flip Folder and the Grover-Trophy 10 Windows Flip Folio Folder. You'll also find replacement rings and screws from the likes of Yamaha and Grover-Trophy. Plasti Lyre even offers a box of 100 metal folio rings - so try to spend a bit of time in this catalog.
When you consider how affordable lyres and flip folders are, it only makes sense to include them in your accessory toolbox. In the world of brass and woodwind instruments, certain extras are more essential than others when it comes to helping you put on a great performance - and lyres and flip folders should definitely be up high on the wish list of every serious concertist.
