    I had to ask the customer (he's Italian) the correct way to pronounce it myself!

  6. Bowlback mandolin Preston-style tuners and interesting bridge

    Unusual bridge design, and Preston-style or Portuguese-guitar-style tuners, but only 4 of them, not 8, so unclear how it'd actually be tuned?

    Interesting thing either way...

    Re: A jarana jarocha I built

    Thanks!

    Scale length is 50cm (this is a segunda size). They are usually tuned G CC EE AA G, but sometimes A DD GG BB E. I've gone with the latter for now (with an octave on the G) so I can more...

    Re: Medieval gittern

    Scale length of 44cm.

    This one is for a customer who is a mandola player, so it's tuned the same by their request: CGDA. There is limited evidence of what the traditional tuning would have been,...

    Medieval gittern

    Gittern all finished. They'd have traditionally been carved from a single block, but I build mine from ribs like a small lute.

    Re: A 6 course renaissance lute I built

    Thanks! The rose(tte) design is from a lute by Laux Maler from 1530. The pegs were not made by me, but I did alter them slightly to the customer's specifications to be easier to turn for smaller...

    Re: A 6 course renaissance lute I built

    Thanks both.
    I don't have any videos yet as the strings are still settling. The customer (who is a professional lutenist) has agreed to do a video for me though when he receives it, and he can play...
