"Night, parent goddess, source of sweet repose, from whom at first both Gods and men arose..." - Orphic Hymn to Nýx

Do you own an ancient or early musical instrument, and you need to carry it around with you for a live performance or a trip, but be reassured that it would be protected from water, dust, or an accidental drop?

Named after the Greek goddess of the night, Nýx Premium Gigbag is all you need: water-resistant, dust-proof, and highly shock-absorbing thanks to its 25mm power-padding.

What's more, it is ultra-lightweight (under 1kg), it has an ergonomic design inspired by premium backpacks with breathable back for comfortability, extra reinforced straps, durable zippers, and a big A4+ size pocket (along with two small compartments) for all your music scores, a notepad, your ODE pickup, and many more. 

It is designed from scratch by LUTHIEROS family, under the guidance of world-renowned ancient and early musicians, and taking into account a combined experience of more than three decades. 

It has a modular design for the inside, and it comes in two sizes (Nýx Bag Regular and Nýx Bag Plus) to fit every LUTHIEROS premium lyre, kithara, barbiton, or phorminx.

"All of these beautiful lyres, lovingly hand-crafted by Luthieros are indeed, divine artifacts, reintroduced into the modern world… " - Michael Levy, a world-renowned lyre player. Read his extended review here.

"Electric guitars are very often provided with vibrato, tremolo or whammy bars. That concept was in fact invented by the ancient Greeks twenty four hundred years ago. Kithara was a musical instrument very popular during the Golden Age of Ancient Greece. This is a reproduction that was made by the Greek master luthier Anastasios Koumartizis of Luthieros Music Instruments." - Peter Pringle, a professional Canadian musician, and well-known ancient instruments player. Watch his extended video review here.

"Can't be happier with my lyre! Learning how to play this amazing piece of art! The lyre has amazing finishes and you can feel it's made with love and skilfull hands." - Jaume Gual Bennàssar, Balearic Islands, Spain (verified review through Etsy.com).

Our family is world-renowned for its dedication, love and care. Here are some amazing reviews concerning our whole product range!

"It’s handcrafted with such care and the materials are fine and well chosen. It arrived to us safely all the way from Greece and we were able to track it all the way so we always knew what was happening." - Rachel Loeb, Los Angeles, U.S.A. (verified review through Etsy.com).

"Amazing company! I was very skeptical about ordering an instrument online but it was packaged very safely and arrived in such a timely manner! Luthieros also has some of the best communication skills I've ever encountered with a company, I had many questions that were all answered with great detail shortly after I asked them." - Batherus Batherus, New York, U.S.A. (verified review through Etsy.com).

"The Koumartzis familia have been making replicas of ancient Greek instruments for many years, used by famous lyre players. They also contribute to their musical passions through research and collaborations." - Ancient History Encyclopedia. Read the extended tribute here.

"My ancient Kithara, handcrafted by Luthieros Music Instruments, is for me a very interesting challenge. As an instrument is both old and new. It carries a history of many centuries and at the same time_ it is a very modern challenge that requires a creative approach to musical archetypes. After many experiments […] I discover that this instrument has but many extensions and features that are not noticeable at first glance. The construction is both sturdy and thin, and made of quality woods, which are eclectic, stylish and durable." - Ross Daly, a professional world musician of Irish descent.

"Absolutely fantastic! A truly wonderfully crafted instrument. I can’t put it down. It feels wonderful to play and is transporting me back in time." - Sarah Tilsley, West Sussex, U.K. (verified review through Etsy.com).
