SandnerSander, a company for metal flutes and lyra, has been one of the leading manufacturers for marching flutes and lyra for decades. Sander is a small family firm in the Schwarzwald. The "magical" flute, a nickel-plated, cylindric metal flute without claps is the traditional marching flute. The two-octave Sandner-lyra is gladly used, if a handy, transportable, and, yet, high-classed lyra is needed. The Sander-lyra with the plastic frame and polished aluminium claps is used in marching music and guggen music.
