EMS Heritage 8-Course Renaissance Lute after Hieber

3 reviews
£895.00
SKU EMSL8H

This popular, affordable student lute from the Early Music Shop is made after original lutes by Hieber. It is an ideal instrument for a beginner and is highly recommended by our resident lute tutors Jacob Heringman and Wezi Elliott. 

Watch a short clip of this lute in action (performed by Jacob Heringman)! 

The 8-course lute is ideally suited for a beginner lutenist wanting to play a wide range of solo repertoire as well as lute-songs. It is also perfect for continuo playing!

Our own range of lutes were completely re-designed in 2015. There were many issues with our old lutes, for example the string-spacing and action. These issues have been addressed with these new designs as well as further improvements made.

  • Standard Tuning (Renaissance in g)
  • 600mm String Length
  • Aquila Nylgut Strings
  • Made of Lacewood, Sitka (Spruce) and Walnut
  • Includes a Semi-Rigid Gig Case
  • Free Lute Tutor Book

The lute is beautiful and sounds great. The strap button wasn't attached and comes right out but not sure if that was on purpose.

The package was slightly delayed do to coronavirus, but my experience was overall fantastic.
