The earliest extant account providing structural details about lute construction is in a manuscript of about by the Flemish theorist of French origins, Henry Arnaut de Zwolle,4 who was employed at the court of Burgundy. Sebastian Virdung5 was the first German musician to write about the lute describing the system of notation. If you are making a lute-backed instrument, we recommend Robert Lundberg's series on lute-making in American Lutherie, the journal of the Guild of American Luthiers. This incredible series has now been published as a book, Historic Lute Construction.

Historical Lute Construction Praise for Historical Lute Construction: “Robert Lundberg was known as a meticulous researcher and craftsperson. I wish he’d been involved in violins instead of lutes — the violin field could use more people like him.

I know the book from Savannah - Lute Construction by Robert Cooper. It does not have too much to recommend it. The plan is for a very heavy German 's lute and much of the work described is better done in other ways. I suppose the order of construction is OK.

Additional Physical Format: Online version: Macleod-Coupe, Philip. Lute construction. Richmond, Eng.: The Lute Society, © (OCoLC) Document Type. Robert Lundberg, in his book Historical Lute Construction, suggests ancient builders placed bars according to whole-number ratios of the scale length and belly length.

He further suggests the inward bend of the soundboard (the "belly scoop") is a deliberate adaptation by ancient builders to afford the lutenist's right hand more space between Classification: String instrument (plucked). I took measurements, notes and familiarized myself with the geometry of the instrument.

I also studied the book Historical Lute Construction by Robert Lundberg along with various lute blueprints from the Guild of American luthiers. The E-Lute’s body shape is essentially an enlargement of my Maxwell model.

Essay. The origin of the lute (It.: leùto, liuto; Gr.: laute; Sp.: laúd; Fr.: luth) cannot be pinpointed to a specific date, but its close relationship to the Arab ‘ud is without doubt.

The ‘ud has a pear-shaped body with a bowled back, made of numerous ribs (thin strips of wood), a wooden soundboard, rosettes (decorative soundholes), plucked gut strings, and a peghead that is bent. Lute can refer generally to any string instrument having the strings running in a plane parallel to the sound table (in the Hornbostel–Sachs system), more specifically to any plucked can refer generally to any string instrument having the strings running in a plane parallel to the sound table (in the Hornbostel–Sachs system), more specifically to.

This is a renaissance lute version of the successful baroque lute-making course which took place on the internet from April to April This time the lute is based on an original lute made by Georg Gerle (Vienna SAM 31) probably sometime in the 's. 60cm string length, 6 courses [extendable to 7 in the course]; 11 ribs: the original.

The Renaissance lute evolved from the Moorish ‘ud, which had been introduced into Spain during the s. A number of Spanish and Byzantine carvings from around the 10th century show an instrument very similar in construction to the lute being File Size: 1MB.

Unlike other sources I’ve encountered, they understand and service the instruments they sell and control and participate in the manufacture process. The book I was most familiar with, Robert Lundberg's Historical Lute Construction, doesn't mention it at all; that's not surprising, I suppose, since Lundberg didn't actually use hide glue (for the purposes of that book, at least).

I also tried making a solid mold using the method described by Robert Lundberg in his book Historical Lute Construction, which is basically building up a big block of wood, then carving away everything that doesn't look like a lute back! Lundberg uses external templates to give shape to the block, but I found this to be a very difficult method.Historical Lute Construction by Robert Lundberg This is the late Robert Lundberg's masterpiece, the definitive contemporary work on lute construction.

It is s minutely detailed how to book with seven reduced plans and over step-by-step photos.I have been building lutes and copies of historical instruments professionally sinceafter attending a Lute Society summer seminar at St. Paul's College in Cheltenham, England.

It was there that I first met Philip Macleod-Coupe, Ian Harwood, and other lute makers, and studied the construction of instruments within historical parameters.
