8-Course Travel Lute Rosewood

SKU: ME0891 Category:

Description

The Rosewood travel lute has a body made of eleven solid Rosewood staves, a Rosewood neck and Rosewood fingerboard. The peg box is solid Rosewood attached at an angle of 135 degrees to reduce the depth of the instrument. The tuning pegs and end pin are Rosewood . The soundboard is made out of European spruce. There are eight nylon frets and four Rosewood frets. The recommended tuning is G4, D4, A3, F3, C4, C3,G3, G2, F3, F2, D3, D2. A padded gig bag is included.

Throughout history lutes have typically had gut strings. Lute strings today, however, are nylon made with high precision instruments. The rectified nylon strings in the set are known for their warmer tone and lightly textured feel. The silverplated copper wound nylon bass strings also produce a very warm, classical tone. We recommend the traditional Renaissance tuning for this set.
