5 of 5 Roosebeck Deluxe 8-course Lute June 15, 2022
Reviewer: William Haegele from Natural Bridge, VA United States  
Excellent build quality. Beautiful colors and appearance of wood. Tricky to tune. Takes a while for strings to stretch enough to hold tune. If you have  ever played a lute before, be aware that holding and playing a lute requires a very different technique compared to classical guitar. Very nice sound with crisp highs and solid, tight bass. Lots of fun once you get the hang of it. Very happy with my purchase.

4 of 5 Roosebeck Deluxe 8-Course Lute, Canadian Spruce October 9, 2015
Reviewer: Harry Egnor from Putnam Valley, NY United States  
I am very pleased with the quality of the Roosebeck Deluxe 8-Course Lute, Candian Spruce. The fit and finish are what I would expect, as is the sound and playability. At this price I would consider this to be an entry level instrument, but I was happily surprised at it's professional qualities. The only thing I am disappointed with is the case, hence only 4 stars! I expected to receive the Roosebeck fitted case pictured on your site, not the inexpensive substitute I received.
Today I ordered the case pictured your site, but what will I do with the one that came with the Lute, I'll not be using it?Perhaps you should offer the option of a case upgrade at the time of purchase? I thought of asking if I could exchange the case, but the return shipping is almost $60.00 plus an additional $50.00 for the new case.
