Hello Dear Members,

I need strings for RENAISSANCE 8 COURSE Louta and BAROQUE 6 COURSE Louta.

I am a maker and reseller in Turkey, we are making these louta now but we need strings for them. How I can strings for these Louta in good prices?

Thank you

Maybe try to work out a wholesale deal with Pyramid in Germany? http://pyramid-saiten.de/de/products/other-historic-laute.php

I think however you look at it 8 course renaissance lute strings are going to cost more than basic oud strings. You can contact EMS in London, maybe try a wholesale deal with them as well. They make their own brand of 8 course lute strings. You can also use oud string for somesome of the courses, but would need to check the tensions for your scale lute.

Hey here's a lute resource you may find helpful in your search for strings.

It's similar to this forum. You can join up and post questions and ideas.


also would enjoy seeing some photos of your lutes.
