What our customers say

  • Corinna Dockhorn


    What can I say? It's an absolutely stunning instrument!!! So solidly built with a lovely sound. And so lightweight and easy to hold. As I told Victoria when I ordered, I first saw your bell lyres on Youtube, where they looked and sounded so good. But it's even more beautiful to hear it live! 

    I'm absolutely happy with my purchase! 

    And thanks so much for your outstanding customer service

  • Catherine

    I've really been enjoying the glockenspiel. It makes a great sound and resonates so much more than my previous one. It is quite heavy when parading but worth it for the quality. Particularly pleased with the colour which suits my band perfectly!

  • Bluebelle Drum Majorettes - Christine

    I run a voluntary marching show band group by the name of Bluebelle Drum majorettes.

    As a child i played a Mayfield Bell-lyre for 10 years, now running my own team, i have 5 bell-lyres players. I would only ever purchase the best for this team. Which leads me on to to Mayfield. Tony refurbished our bell-lyres to top  AAA+ standard, he was so helpful. I’m so please that i found this company again, i would highly recommend anyone in the marching band world to use this fantastic company with their truly helpful and dedicated staff who deliver excellent service.

    We are very impressed by the Mayfield Bell Lyre, a truly superbly crafted instrument.

    Our students look forward to learning to master the Lyre.

  • Piero


    Our music teacher has great appreciation for this instrument which, although a lightweight instrument for the parade, has been shown to have a clear and powerful sound. He also enjoyed the good workmanship in which it was built.

    The Mayfield Bell Lyre has added an entirely new dimension to our Marching Band. The sound it produces is fantastic - utterly crisp, sharp, and arresting, and the mere presence of such a high calibre instrument instantly elevates the status and professionalism of the band. Overall a brilliant piece of kit, and something which we quite simply could no longer do without.
