Haddock 6-Course Descant Lute in A after Tieffenbrucker

£1,450.00
SKU HADL6T

We've commissioned Stephen Haddock to produce an exclusive range of inexpensive lutes that are suitable for beginners and more advanced players. He has produced a handmade collection of 6, 7 and 8-course lutes based on originals by Giovanni Hieber and this Descant Lute in A after Tieffenbrucker

 

This lute is after, but not a exact copy of a descant lute  by Tieffenbruker Padua in Vienna Kunsthist Mus’, and dates from 1582. The original has 19 ribs with 7 courses, but Stephen has made this with 11 ribs to give it a slightly more rounded body and 6 courses.

Stephen uses a variety of woods and materials for this 6-course lute. They are typically made of: 

  • Back - Sycamore & cherrywood ribs with a stained maple inlay 
  • Neck & Pegbox: Cherrywood
  • Bridge & Fingerboard: Plumwood
  • Pegs & Button: Boxwood
  • Nut: Bone
  • Soundboard: Alpine Spruce
  • Finish: Oil Varnish 

Tuning: A D G B E A

Strings

This lute has a string length of 530mm and is strung in unison with Aquila Nylgut strings. For replacement strings view the stringing chart for Haddock's instruments.
