Thanks Ed. I've been exploring earlier repertoire again and was wondering if you had the time to just play duets. It's about time anyway.

Just a few days to UK . Maybe yours will be via sea mail? I hope not! I will write my impressions later in the Thomann thread - it seems fine - no problems

Thanks for contacting me. I'm not familiar with the Thomann cittern. Is there is a link on the web, or can you give me some more information?


All best,

Hi Edward, surprised to hear from you. I have not decided whether to buy the Thomann Lute or the Thomann baroque guitar yet.  What sort of Lute are you playing?  It is a renaissance lute?  Are there teachers teaching lute in Singapore? You could SMS your handphone number to me and I can call you. My number is 012-3001567.

      Nice to hear someone playing lute so near to malaysia. I don't know if anyone playing lute in malaysia, but there are quite a lot of malaysians playing the Gambus ( a middle-eastern ud) it looks very much like a lute but it doesn't sound like one though.
