  1. EXCEEDING ALL EXPECTATIONS.

    I must congratulate Miguel Serdoura and his team of builders on their vision and enterprise in producing this wonderful instrument. The quality of the woods, construction and case are far beyond my expectations. The lute is very light indeed. When held by the neck, normal level speech causes the lute to slightly vibrate! The quality of the maple wood used for the back is very attractive and has been constructed to a very high standard with small ebony strips in-between the maple ribs. The whole then has a well applied satin finish. The rose is laser cut with an attractive pattern. The pegs hold tune very well as do the strings. The fibreglass case should also offer good protection.
    Sound wise the lute is new so should open up more with playing but my first thoughts are that the lute displays a very good bass response with smooth, sweet trebles. It does not sound harsh or brittle when played over the rose like some other lesser instruments and I am looking forward to hear just how it develops over the coming months.
    It is magical to think that an instrument of this caliber is available without the prolonged wait and understandably large price tag from U.K. luthiers with their higher workshop costs. How many potential players have been put off by that?
    If you are reading this and are thinking of buying your first Lute but think "I have seen Lutes for less money on eBay" (or similar) please think again. I have examined quite a few of these instruments. In general they are heavy, clumsily constructed and nearly all would require remedial work on their set-up and tuning pegs adding an additional cost. Even with this work done you are still going to get an inferior instrument. In short, buy on of these, and thank you Miguel for opening up the Lute to many more players. Kind regards, Paul

  2. Beautiful Lute with a Wonderful Sound

    I purchased the Dowland lute from Le Luth Doré at the recommendation of my teacher, and could not be more pleased. It is a beautifully-made instrument, has a lovely tone, and feels just wonderful to play.

    In addition to its aesthetic appeal, it is crafted with evident care, from the tuning pegs to the beautiful rosette. The hard-shell case is solid but light-weight, and I love the built-in humidifier.

    I have had my lute for eighteen months, and from the day I ordered it, Miguel has been helpful and friendly, answering my questions quickly and thoroughly. The books I received are also wonderful; carefully edited, easy to read, and with a sturdy binding.

    My entire experience with Le Luth Doré has been excellent, and I am so glad that I have one of these fantastic lutes to play every day.

    I received my Dowland lute from Le Luth Doré in May of this year and am very pleased with it. It is a beautiful work of art that inspires me every day when I play it.

    The customer service throughout the purchase process and since I have taken possession of it have been first rate. Miguel is very responsive and helpful. he went out of his way to make the experience of buying my lute a pleasure.

    The lute sounds great. It is beautiful to look at and comfortable to hold and to play. I play it every day and am very happy to be an owner of a Le Luth Doré instrument.

  4. Excellent Pro-level lute

    This is the second Le Luth Doré lute I've tried, and I am as impressed with this "Dowland" lute as I was with the "Weiss" lute.

    The same high-level of craftsmanship is evident all over the instrument. It really is a pro-level lute, and I would happily use it in concerts and recordings.

    I recommended it to a student of mine, and she now has a fantastic instrument, which should inspire her for years to come.
