Recommended LYRE and FOLIO for each instrument - these can be purchased at any music store:
|Flute = Flutist's Friend
Flute players do not need a lyre as this will not attach to your instrument but will strap on your arm.
|Clarinet = Clarinet Lyre and Folio
Clarinet players attach this lyre to the middle ring between the upper and lower portions of the instrument.
|Saxophones = Sax Lyre and Folio
Saxophone players will attach this lyre to the holder just below the neck of the instrument.
|Trumpet and Trombone = Clip-On Folio
Trumpet and Trombone players can use this clip-on folio without a lyre - it attaches right on the bell of the instrument.
|Folio = a marching flip folder that holds your music.
