1997 Michael Shreiner Theorbo after Sellas w/Kingham case

I am selling my beautiful 1997 Michael Schreiner theorbo. The string length is 80/160 and it has a spruce top and Indian rosewood bowl and 7/7 for the stringing. The instrument is in excellent condition, with some minor cosmetic scuffs and there are no cracks anywhere. This instrument has been extremely well maintained and has an excellent, rich sound quality. I have used it for solo music, duo, small ensemble, and orchestra settings and it has excelled in each situation. This instrument is perfect for someone who needs a pro-level instrument that isn’t too big or too small, and puts out a lot of sound. I am including a Kingham MTM case with it that is in good condition. There is some wear on the outside but the inside is perfect. The instrument has been kept in a well humidified room.

I am asking $6000USD; please contact me for more information at

This instrument can be picked up and/or tried in Montreal, Canada, and if you want it shipped you would need to pay shipping and other relevant fees.

Here is a short video of my playing it in a nice stairwell (no audio enhancements, just natural reverb, originally posted on my instagram channel @gamma.lute):

You can also listen to a recording by Brandon Acker playing my theorbo (it was previously his):
