5 of 5 Everything as expected January 10, 2020
Reviewer: John from Mankato, MN United States  
The lute arrived quickly, and was well-packaged.  I was looking for a kind of "starter" instrument, and this serves that purpose.  Certainly, someone who already plays the lute (or guitar) might want to look for a more traditional instrument.  I had noted a review that expressed concern over pegs slipping.  I have not found that to be an issue, but I know that orchestral stringed instruments (violins, violas, cellos) can have similar issues, and that peg drops can be used on those instruments.

Reviewer: David from USA  
I'm new to period instruments, but I've been a musician most of my life. The soundbite helped me select this lute, but it just doesn't  do it any justice. The sound of this instrument is just magnificent and the craftsmanship was impressive. It shipped quickly and was well-packaged. I am impressed all around and would highly recommend this product.

The catalog was descriptive and the sample sound byte was helpful in deciding on this instrument.
