A beautiful lute! It suits Weiss very well - let's hope there's more to follow :)

Thanks geoff and V.,
Yes Eric, Weiss on the baroque lute is really something ! I tried other german baroque composers but not one like Weiss ! (I'll play some Baron and Kopffganss sometimes...)

Very nice playing Luthval..It's very strange that string-rich instrument has a smooth tone although these lots of strings! (And two extra!) :)

I know you like the instruments with alot of strings (!) So I found something just for you :) We call it "Kanun"..It's played with fingers wearing collets..Maybe you know it..

Talking of many strings - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1elze4qS ... annel_page. As far as strings it has fewer but with "courses" - it beats lutes by a long, long way! A beautiful instrument too I think. :D
