My son will be joining the Drum and Lyre Band again this school year. It’s one of the many school activities that will keep him busy. I bought the bell lyre for P1,100.00 ($27) and comes with a free case. It’s original price was P1,500.00 or $37. I checked online and the price is a bit higher. But if you are looking for other musical gadget like a reverb or effects processor you can save on lexicon mx200 at guitar center. In Quiapo, Manila, one can get the same quality of lyre at much lower price. My son said the bell lyre is easy to play. It’s the first real musical instrument we have at home.
