Founded in 1965 in Lake Geneva, WI, by Don E. Getzen, DEG Music Products continues to be the top-selling brand for marching band lyres and flip-folios.
DEG HC225 Flutist's Friend Flute Lyre
The DEG Flute Lyre w/Flip-Folder is a handy all-in-one marching lyre that allows you to take your music on the go. It also features a spring-loaded Wind Clip to help keep your music clamped down firm and two plastic rings for easy flipping.
All DEG flip-folders include five clear plastic windows and two plastic rings. Additional windows are available for purchase separately.
With the narrow part of the base facing towards your body, place the lyre on your left forearm near the elbow. Pull the elastic strap out and bring it up around the arm to hook the loop over the tabs on the front of the base. The strap may be adjusted to fit your arm by pulling it through the slots. When you have the lyre fitted on your arm, hold your flute or piccolo in playing position. Adjust the position of flip-folder until it is in the best viewing position for you. Do this by loosening the wing nut and turning the top to the right or left. When it's in the best position for you, tighten up the wing nut. Now get out there and march your sweet lil heart out!
