      Nice lute for Beginner

      I'm beginning to play the lute, and I've already rent and tried some expensive luthier lutes (the price of some is more than 3000 €). To be honest, the sound of this beginner lute has actually matched/over the price. The lute comes with a semi-rigid case, which can protect the instrument very well. Thanks for the extra set of lute strings and the introduction sheets. The lute is very well packed and safely shipped to Germany. The employees of the EMS group are also friendly. It is a perfect beginner instrument to explore the world of the lute and renaissance music!

      Great lute, great service

      I'm only beginning to learn the lute, but from my experience with other string instruments, the setup of EMS Heritage 7-Course is great. Tuning pegs operate perfectly, string action is fine. Didn't experience any issues with it so far, very happy overall. The only thing to note is that it comes completely unvarnished, but on the other hand, it probably helps to cut the cost quite a bit, so I'm fine with that.

      Fanulous quality

      It is very hard to spend a lot of money on an instrument and feel confident about the outcome. But you realise very quickly that the Early Music shop only sells instruments of the highest quality and understands the needs of beginners.

      Beginner lute player.

      I have never played a string instrument before. It is fun to learn something new. I opted for the rental scheme but have since purchased the lute. The instrument is light and has a nice sound. Tuning has been a learning curve but is getting easier. It was easy to order this from the shop and it came well packaged and very quickly. I am enjoying learning the lute and this instrument is perfect for me as a beginner.

      The quality of the build of this instrument is outstanding. The tuning pegs have good hold and the lacewood, walnut and spruce are a beautiful combination. The case and extra set of strings are appreciated. This is a perfect instrument to begin the exploration of lute music!
