Lutes
   

Lute History - Scroll For More Information
The lute can refer generally, to any plucked-string musical instrument with a neck (either fretted or unfretted) and a deep round back, or the more specific style of "European lute". The lute is used in a great variety of instrumental music from the Medieval to the late Baroque eras and was one of the most important instruments for secular music in the Renaissance. It evolved from the ancient Middle Eastern instrument, the oud.

It was popular and widely used in Europe from about the 12th century AD until well into the 18th century. After a period of disuse lasting more than a hundred years, interest in it revived during the 20th century.

Lutes are made almost entirely of wood. The soundboard is a teardrop-shaped thin flat plate of resonant wood (usually spruce). European lutes have a large, circular sound hole cut into the belly and ornamented with a perforated rose carved from the belly's wood.The back/shell consists of thin strips of hardwood joined edge to edge to form the deep rounded body.


Lute-Guitar, Rosewood, Gears, Dbl, Flame The double bowl guitar is an attractive and lightweight instrument of a similar size and scale to a standard classical guitar but with a body like a lute, with a twist. The double bowl-shaped body is achieved by edge-gluing together staves of uniformly thin hardwoods bent to a specific shape with no heavy internal bracing to retain its form. The bowl is made of sheesham rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) that affords a warm, mellow tone.

European spruce is used for the soundboard and, in keeping with the design of 16th-Century lutes, its soundhole is a carved rosette in an attractive geometric pattern which is cut into the soundboard itself and is not inlaid of different material. Most exciting is that the soundboard bracing pattern follows bracing used in world-famous Kohno classical guitars.

The mahogany neck has a shape is similar to a classical guitar with a 51mm (2 inch) wide nut of ebony. The head stock is in the shape of a flame. Using standard nylon classical guitar strings, it is tuned like a guitar in e, b, G, D, A, E tuning. If it is to be used for lute music, the 3rd string may be tuned a semi-tone down to F# to enable lute fingering. The guitar is outfitted with smooth-operating gold tuners with black ebonized tuning key buttons.

The overall length is 40-1/2" and the scale length is 25-3/8", similar to a normal guitar. The instrument has a satin lacquer finish. GDNRGF   $665.10

Lute-Guitar, 6 String, Lacewood, Taylor The lute-guitar is an attractive instrument of a similar size to the guitar but with a body like a lute. With a neck shaped like that of a guitar and a 51mm (2 inch) nut of ebony, it will appeal to those who are familiar with normal classical or acoustic guitars. It is tuned like a guitar with six strings, three of plain nylon and three of nylon wound in nickel. If it is to be used for lute music, the 3rd string may be tuned a semi-tone down to F# to enable the application of lute fingering. Spruce is used for the unpolished soundboard in keeping with original lutes and its soundhole has a carved rose in an attractive geometric pattern.  In keeping with the lute, the characteristically bowl-shaped body is achieved by edge-gluing together slats of thin wood bent to a specific shape with no internal structure to retain its form.  The overall length is 953 mm (37.5 inches) and the scale length is 648 mm (25.5 Inches), similar to a normal guitar. A hard case is included with this instrument.The lute has a long history dating back to pre-biblical times and although it has existed in many forms it may be classified as either short- or long-necked. The European lute and its ancestor, the oud, (or, 'al'ud' meaning 'the wood') are examples of the short-necked variety and were later developments. Examples of the lute-guitar, or some may call it guitar-lute, were plentiful in Germany towards the end of the 19th century and whilst it may be thought of as a type of guitar due to its stringing, six-course versions of the lute were also known in the Renaissance period. The term 'course' refers to the arrangement of the stringing. A 'course' may contain single, double or even triple strings, thus the guitar has single-string courses whereas the lute would be double strung. As with the German examples the lute-guitar has a bridge reminiscent of Baroque guitars with upturned 'moustaches' at the ends and pegs to retain the strings. It is best to tie a small stopper knot in the end of the string to increase its security when its retaining peg is inserted into the bridge. The fingerboard on the lute was level with the soundboard and its frets were of gut tied around the neck in the appropriate places. Our lute-guitar has nickel silver frets fitted in a fingerboard that is higher than the soundboard, as is found on guitars.

Some may find the round back of the lute-guitar body less easy to hold than the flat-back guitar and that is why, at the bottom end of the instrument a peg has been fitted to permit the attachment of a strap to facilitate security whilst playing. With one end of the strap attached to the peg and the other end tied to the tuning head it is possible to play whilst standing if required. Originally lutes were tuned by means of tapered pegs similar to those found on a conventional violin, but on the lute-guitar modern machine heads are fitted for ease of tuning. This instrument has great appeal to guitarists who enjoy playing early folk music and who like the idea of playing an instrument with a look and feel of the old times.

Zachary Taylor is a designer and maker of early stringed instruments. Early in his career as a performer on classical guitar and lute he began to study the creation of representations of early instruments. In his relentless research from many sources he endeavours to acquire sufficient information for the construction of examples in the likeness of original instruments. For more than a quarter of a century he has taught the subject of lutherie in the Universities of Suffolk, England and Vigo, Spain and in colleges including West Dean, Missenden Abbey and York in England. Major projects include the re-construction of instruments that form the entrance arch to the Cathedral of Santiago de Compostela. His authorship includes many books, including 'Make and Play a Lute' and 'Making early stringed instruments'.

It is Zachary Taylor's mission to design authentic examples of ancient instruments, accessible to enthusiasts who demand high quality without a high-price tag. GLCZT   $665.10

Lute-Guitar, 6, Variegated, Gears, Flame The lute-guitar is an attractive and lightweight instrument of a similar size and scale to a standard classical guitar but with a body like a lute. In keeping with the character of a lute, the bowl-shaped body is achieved by edge-gluing together staves of uniformly thin hardwoods bent to a specific shape with no heavy internal bracing to retain its form. The bowl is made of two alternating woods: Lacewood (Platanus orientalus) is a light-colored hardwood that has color similar to maple and has distinctive rays that provide what is known as a "beeswing" pattern. A member of the sycamore family, its timbre characteristics are similar to maple generally providing a brighter tone than rosewood. The dark-colored wood is sheesham rosewood (Dalbergia sissoo) that affords a warmer mellower tone. The combination of the two offers a blended timbre as well as a desirable look.

European spruce is used for the soundboard and, in keeping with the design of 16th-Century lutes, its soundhole is a carved rosette in an attractive geometric pattern which is cut into the soundboard itself and is not inlaid of different material. Most exciting is that the soundboard bracing pattern follows bracing used in world-famous Kohno classical guitars.
