The miano is a type of Accardian lyre that has sometimes been employed by conjurers for use in musical incantations, or alternately, for line dancing at guild socials. When plucked with a miano stick, the lyre sounds rich, deep notes, usually in a minor key.

In the Z'Orchestra, the mianos are positioned in the front row, between the nambinos on the left and the fleezles on the right. The frobophones are at the hind.
