I've been meaning to post this request for information for a while. The very first flute I bought was from a junk shop in Aberdeen in 1972.
It is an 8-keyed flute, in concert pitch, and stamped on the headjoint is "Lyra London". An internet search hasn't come up with anything, the word "Lyra" comes up in 2 discussions here referring to flutes, but they don't quite fit. Does anyone have any information on "Lyra London".
Thanks.
PS - sticking my neck out here, but here's a clip of me playing the flute in 1984 :

Not mentioned (as far as I can see) in Langwill, so probably a dealer, not a maker?

Thanks for the reply, Terry. You're very probably correct, but they maybe weren't the most successful of dealers if no-one else here has come across a flute with the "Lyra" stamp on it.
A' the best, Kenny.
