WARM MEDIEVAL NYLON STRINGS
This is a renaissance lute with 8 strings tuned in unison. The lute is equipped with nylon strings - it's amazing how many different ways the lute is used in music. In the Middle Ages, it was the most important instrument for secular music. But it is also used in the score, for example in the Jim Jarmusch film Only Lovers Left Alive.
What is a lute ?
Generally speaking, "lute" is a term that refers to almost any stringed instrument whose strings run across a sound box. However, when referring to a real lute, the European lute (or the modern Middle Eastern oud) is meant. Some of its characteristics include a body with a single decorated sound hole called a rose, a thin wood strip body, and a headstock that is angled back from the fretboard by almost 90°.
The first lutes were brought to Spain by the Moors and were plucked with a plectrum; later they were only played with fingers. The strings of the lute are arranged in rows of two strings each, except for the highest tuning, which consists of only one string, called the fox. Our lute is a renaissance lute with 8 steps: (highest to lowest) a' e' bgd AGE - The courses are tuned in unison. Lutes today have nylon strings, like classical guitars, and historically they were made from animal intestines.
The lute was used in a wide variety of instrumental works from the Middle Ages to the late Baroque era. It was the most important instrument of the secular music of the Renaissance. But it is also used in the score, for example in the Jim Jarmusch film Only Lovers Left Alive.
