"With Ross Daly's help and recommendations, he and I have been able to make lyras with sympathetic strings, which he invented, to a very high level.
This lyra is a medium model - type with 17 sympathetic strings. Zacharias Spyridakis, Dimitris Apostolakis, G. Kondogiannis and myself, as well as some others, continue to use the medium type.
The lyras are made using maple wood for the body and cedar of Lebanon for the soundboard.
Although other types of wood can be used for the body, cedarwood seems to be irreplaceable for the soundboard.
The problem is that the felling and sale of cedarwood is now prohibited, making it very difficult to get hold of.
Fortunately it is found in abundance in the roofs of old houses on Crete and other islands, as it was imported in large quantities during the Ottoman period.
Thus any cedar used for soundboards today is at least 120 years old."
Stelios Petrakis
