!! REVIEW !! Lyra Rembrandt Art Design | World's Best Drawing Pencils or bust? reviews

Added to wishlistRemoved from wishlist 0



This is a REVIEW of the Lyra Rembrandt Art Design 12 piece drawing pencil set made in Germany. Is this the World’s Best Drawing Pencils for artists…or not? How does it compare to others?

When learning how to draw, you want the best set of drawing pencils you can get for less than the higher name brands. The Lyra Rembrandt Art Design drawing pencils may actually fit this need.

These drawing pencils are great for artists, for beginners, for students, and for school. They may not be the best drawing pencils in the world, but perhaps they are as close as one might need?

In this video we look closely at the pencil grades and whether they go from light to dark in proper increments. Are they smooth or gritty?

This pencil set comes in a tin case and ranges from 4h to 6b.

    After doing some comparisons against other sets from different manufacturers, I can tell the following…

    This Lyra set is, definitely, tonally lighter than other competitors out there, BUT:

    1. The cores of these pencils are extremely break resistant!

    2. Their tonal gradation is, unlike others, very consistent (linear and accurate) accross the whole set!

    3. The tonal change (light pressure vs hard pressure on paper) of each pencil, especially on darker grades, is really wide!

    4. If you order separately the 7B, 8B and 9B, you'll get a very complete and an almost perfect set!

    5. Plus it's cheaper (and overall as good as) other famous competitors!

    👍🏻

    Are the LYRA REMBRANDT ART DESIGN the same pencils as the LYRA ART DESIGN 669? Why is the text engraved on both different?

    I have noticed that that set you show (which is the old case design), "LYRA ART DESIGN 669" is engraved on the pencils, while in the modern set that I have (the metal case comes unprinted), "LYRA REMBRANDT ART DESIGN" is engraved on the pencils.

    I am inclined to think that they are both the same model, but that in the modern set not only the design of the case has changed, but also the engraving on the pencils themselves.

    Is that so?

    There's something wrong with the grading of the Mitsubishi and/or the Lyra.

    If the Mitsubishi has a slightly wider tone range (slightly lighter 4H and slightly darker 6B) than the Lyra, but they both start separating to each other from grade 2H/H (Mitsubishi is darker), instead of from the middle (HB/B), this means that there's an inconsistent grading (geometric [uneven] trend instead of arithmetic [even] trend).

    If they separate from 2H/H, then 6B on the Mitsubishi should be much darker (and not slightly darker) than 6B on the Lyra.

    It looks like there's something wrong on the grading (going faster on H's and/or slower on B's on the Mitsubishi, and/or going slower on H's and/or faster on B's on the Lyra, after separation from 2H/H.)

    🤷🏻‍♂️

    How do these Lyra compare in overall quality (wood density / graphite density / graphite homogeneity /smoothness / drawing experience / sharpening / finish / etc) to the Faber Castell 9000, Staedtler Mars Lumograph, Mitsubishi Hi-Uni and the Tombow Mono 100?

    How would you rank them all from 1 (best quality) to 5 (less quality)?

    Thank you!

    I've always wondered why the symbols for grading are based on hardness (H – hard) and tone (B – black), instead of only hardness (H – hard / S – soft) or tone (B – black / G – grey).

    That would be the right way for designating the grades: H/S or B/G, instead of H/B.

    Or even better: HG (hard grey) / SB (soft black).

    In my set of Lyras the difference in value of the 3B 4B and 5B can't be seen. These pencils are quite hard compared to other brands of artist pencils I've noticed as well, indicating that they use more clay in their mix or worse quality graphite maybe….I'm not sure. They don't seem to lay down uniform much at all compared to your more expensive set. I'm going to use up more of mine, but I'll move on for my next batch. Tkx for your review.

    My Lyra 9B is easily the lightest (least dark) pencil I own. Way below the marked degree. In my case it was money wasted since these cost approximately a dollar per pencil here.

    I bought 9B it's smooth and hard, I like the quality, but the value grade is low, 9B is almost like HB

    Nice review since I am gonna buy the same set soon. However, your comparison was to a Japanese pencil and not another European pencil. Japanese wood-case pencils i.e. Mitsu-bishi, Tombow all have a tendency to put more graphite in them for blackness as compared to comparable European brands i.e. Steadtler, Faber-Castell which put more clay in them at the same grade for strength. I would have been better if you had used Staedtler Mars Lumograph or Faber-Castell 9000 for a better comparison. I would have found it a more useful comparison.

    Great review, i used to use the Lyra all the time (i drew my profile pic with them) They're a lovely pencil and a great set for beginners as they're inexpensive yet high quality. I'm currently using the new and improved Derwent Graphic. I agree totally about the grades should be all round the pencil so we can easily see. Regarding the Mitsubishi, i don't know if it was the lighting but they seemed too dark. The H for example looked as soft as a 2B. Maybe just the lighting though.

    as per usual great again! just wondering have you tried the tombow mono 100 drawing kit? ive bought a few kits now like yourself and so far they seem to be up there with the best certainly better than a set i bought from caran D'ache technograph 6b to 4h they were terrible hard bits of clay,snapping lead and all the gold bands around the top were all different sizes just a very bad set of all round pencils .
