      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.

      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!
