This new range of lute kits available from the Early Music Shop is based on the ever popular Hieber lutes and designed by our own dedicated team of craftsmen.

The kit builds into a light and responsive instrument with a shell made from thirteen lacewood ribs, separated by narrow inlay strips. The lute is built from a quality solid sitka spruce soundboard with laser cut rose, lacewood neck, peg box and walnut fingerboard and boxwood pegs. This kit is made to the same high specification as our finished lutes.

Just follow the step by step comprehensive instruction manual complete with colour photographs and full scale drawing. An important design improvement is that the kit is supplied with a completely pre-assembled shell, which overcomes the frustrations that many kit builders found with our previous lute kits. Each part is carefully shaped ready for assembly, with only limited hand skills required. We now include a pre-cut rose to encourage those of you who are less adventurous!

All parts are replaceable (should you need it) with the full back up service of our workshop. Each lute kit is supplied with a protective case which is included in the price. A complete set of Aquila Nylgut strings completes the kit.

    The kit is very well made and the key element of the bowl construction is done for you. Great care has to be taken in fixing the neck accurately since this will affect neck alignment and playing action. Also alignment of the top when glueing to the bowl must be done very carefully to ensure symmetry of the top with the neck. I needed some replacement items due to mistakes I had made and Anthony was extremely helpful in supplying them to me.
