Three models of lutes are built on a custom ordered basis. The Medaeval lute is patterned after Arnault de Zwolle, The Renaissance lute is from Giovanni Hieber, and the Baroque model is designed after Michael Harton. Materials and details are all custom and I encourage you to call me to discuss your needs and wishes. Price list with options on request.
Here are some of the rose patterns available:
Lute necks are often veneered in interesting patterns with stripes or panels of wood.
The Arnault Model is a Medaeval style plectrum instrument strung in plain gut. It has five double courses of strings and employs a Gothic styled rose in pearwood and parchment. Prices start at $3950.
The Renaissance Model is patterned after Giovanni Hieber. It has nine ribs and can be built with 6. 7 or 8 courses. The string length is 59cm. It has a full round back and can be fit with an elevated chantarelle peg. Prices start at $5500.
The Baroque Model lute is patterned after Michelle Harton of 1599. It is constructed with 11 ribs forming a flattened or oval shaped back. It has a mensur of 64cm and can accomodate between 8 and 13 courses. Bass extensions and chantarelle riders are options. Prices for this instrument start at $8550.
The Student Model lute is built on the Hieber pattern and has a simplified rose, nice domestic maple back, and a fine Sitka spruce soundboard. I use a rosewood fingerboard and a black dyed neck. The price for this model is $3200.
