£750.00
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.
