  1. Wonderful new lute brings beautiful music into my life!

    I absolutely love my Galilei Renaissance lute! I was so impressed the day it arrived, from the moment I saw the sleek black case to when I opened it and saw the gorgeous instrument inside, and then, when I heard how utterly beautiful it sounded when I plucked the strings! The woods are stunning -- the spruce top with its haselfichte and the absolutely luscious-looking sapelli bowl give the lute a very aesthetically pleasing appearance. The workmanship is of very high calibre -- it is a lightly built instrument, as it should be, and it feels (and looks) very well made to high standards.

    Of course, most importantly, the lute sounds divine: the sound is so delicate and beautiful, but also resonant and rich, bringing to life music from a time long ago, making it sound fresh and new. It is also very comfortable to play, easy to tune, and an all-round musical delight!

    I was also impressed with how helpful and friendly Miguel and everybody is at LLD, because they truly have the best customer service – I was made to feel as if I was the only client they had, and that they wanted to make everything work out for me as best as possible. I have nothing but praise for LLD and their lutes!

    I tell everyone I know about my beautiful LLD lute -- I show it to people and play it for them with great pride and pleasure! Everyone who has seen and heard it is overwhelmed by how lovely it is. If anyone asks about buying a lute, I highly recommend Le Luth Doré and their exceptionally fine instruments.

    I am so very pleased that I chose to buy an LLD lute, because I am thrilled with it! When I sit down to play, the hours slip by as I become lost in a beautiful world of sound! Many thanks to Miguel and LLD for making it so easy (and affordable!) to own and play such a wonderful lute. It has enriched my life immeasurably!

    I've been playing Renaissance music on classical guitar, and I really wanted a Renaissance lute and ordered LLD ® GALILEI 8C RENAISSANCE LUTE.
    The price is also affordable.I think this lute is the best lute for the first time.

  3. Finally, I have a real Renaissance lute from Le Luth Doré in Paris!

    I have had a great interest in the renaissance music throughout my adult life. I have used classical guitar and a special alto guitar to approach this beautiful old music, but all the time I wanted to have a real lute, with the real lute sound and design.

    Finally, I have obtained a such instrument, with the authentic sound and appearance. The choice felt on the Galilei 8 course lute from Le Luth Doré ® in Paris. Miguel at Le Luth Doré ® always responded quickly to my questions and was of great help. When buying a good instrument, it is important for me to be in contact with the seller when it feels necessary. At this company it has not been a problem at all.

    I live far north of Norway, actually north of the Arctic Circle, but it took only five days from Paris until I had it here at my door step. Think that must be some kind of a record?!

    First, I have to say that the transition to lute from classical guitar may be a bit bigger than I thought. The lute is surprisingly delicate and must be played with care, but that is just as it should be I understand. The first few days I had to tune the instrument quite often, but that is also normal - with New Nylgut ® strings and pegs!

    The neck is perfect for me, easy to play and nice. The bowl is made of dark Sapelli, wonderful and beautifully built. The sound is clear but also warm all over the register and gives the perfect sound you associate with a good lute, but the touch has to be light.

    Therefore, I would like to thank Le Luth Doré ® for delivering another lovely instrument, this time to me, and I’m sure tis lute will give me and perhaps others too, great joy in the future.

    Finally, the case is also worth a few comments, simply the strongest and best case I've ever seen, with built-in moisture meter and a lovely dark brown design!"
