Six Course Lute

One of the pillars in the history of the lute- the classic form of the lute widely used from around 1500 to 1580.  The six course was found in various sizes and pitches, either as part of a consort or as a solo instrument.  I offer several models in various string lengths.

Eight Course Lute

Although there are few sources of music that specifically call for eight courses to be used in the same music, the eight course lute has become widely accepted as the most common form of renaissance lute in modern times.  The eight course gives the flexibility for modern players to cover a great range of renaissance repertoire.
