Stephan Sooter, American lutenist, reviews the LLD® Weiss 13c Baroque lute

"I was a bit nervous about buying a lute on line, especially from another continent, but I have been pleasantly surprised. I am extremely happy not only with the lute itself, but also with the service Miguel Serdoura provided. The lute is truly beautiful, and I have a hard time putting it away!"

Eitan Hoffer, Israeli lutenist, reviews the LLD® 8c Renaissance and 13c Baroque lutes

"As I play only the renaissance lute myself (for now) I could only hear the baroque lute in Miguel's hands: it sounds beautiful, warm and full sound across the whole range from the top to the bases. I have played the 8 course renaissance lute and was very impressed with it: well set up (we talked about offering different nut spacings for bigger or smaller hands), easy to play, the sound is full bodied and warm, and well balanced through all the courses."

Rob MacKillop, Scottish lutenist, reviews the LLD® Weiss 13c Baroque lute

"The first thing to say is that this is a beautiful - and beautiful sounding - baroque lute. Le Luth Doré has managed to produce a concert-level instrument at what for many will be a reachable price. Congratulations to Miguel and the staff at Le Luth Doré for producing such a good instrument. I’m very impressed with it."

Our History

Miguel Serdoura, Portuguese-born and Paris-based, leads a group of visionary founders of Le Luth Doré®, the breakthrough non-governmental, early music preservation, appreciation, and performance organization. "We are the first worldwide initiative dedicated exclusively to honoring, preserving, and promoting the musical legacy of European early plucked instruments," he explains, noting that those instruments include early guitars and mandolins in addition to the lutes.
