Student Lute

These instruments are predominantly hand made in small quantities in our workshops in Hamburg, Germany.

We prefer to use European woods with exception of the fingerboard. The Student lute fingerboard is made from ebony. In terms of its qualities there is no substitute.
Our woods are carefully stored, well dried , graded and selected for each student lute.
A Pizzico´s master luthiers (maestri liutai) Barbara Ferloni and Kai Schupp have developed this instruments using historical sources together with their own extensive experience in instrument building. The result is; a simple, well proportioned good sounding easy playable instrument.

The Student lute`s low price is the result of cost savings won in the manufacture process together with the exclusion of ornamentation or perfect wood appearance.
This in no way sacrifices the quality of sound, tone, structural integrity or good craftmanship.
