10c/11c Lute by MARTIN HAYCOCK (Haslemere, 2010)

June 17, 2022

For Sale

The instrument is based on the Gerle mould with 11 ribs of highly-figured maple. The neck, fingerboard and pegbox are veneered with ebony and highly decorated with snakewood marquetry. The lute can also be set up as an 11c baroque lute.

The lute has a superb, strong, and warm tone throughout and really good projection. The stopped string length is 61 cm with 9 tied frets on the neck, so it is about as big, powerful and resonant a body type as you can get with this rather short string length, a really great combination of oomph and playability. Excellent action throughout and a very comfortable instrument to play, since the body is quite flat and the neck really nice and thin.

This 10c allows ultimate flexibility with regards repertoire: you can play all renaissance repertoire on it, most baroque repertoire in 11c set-up, and indeed both solo and accompaniment roles.

The instrument comes with a custom deluxe case by Victor Vorko, it is ultra lightweight with a tough carbon exterior.

The instrument is in Paris.
