Prices

These prices are for undecorated versions of the instruments. For decorative options and other modifications, it is best to contact me personally by email and ask for a quote.

Prices are fixed in euros.

Prices that include the 24% VAT/ALV tax are for customers in the European Union. This tax does not apply to customers elsewhere in the world, but you may instead have to pay customs and/or taxes upon entry to your country, so you should expect to have to pay anything between the full taxed price and the taxless price in total.

Cases

Cases are not included in the prices quoted for the instruments. A case is however absolutely necessary for shipping. I can take care of ordering the proper size and shape of case for your instrument, just choose a maker from this list, or if you know of another case maker, let me know too!

  • I now make cases. Starting at 300 € for renaissance lutes, they are made of 4mm baltic birch plywood with black fake leather exterior, and padded, upholstered interior.
  • RCH Cases, Italy. Apparently gone out of business. Prices beginning at 210 € (vat excl.). durable 6mm thermo-molded plywood, black leathercloth exterior. Not terribly well made.
  • Kingham MTM Cases, UK. High quality hard cases, lightweight construction, choice of colours for the inside and outside. Prices beginning at 530 € (vat excl.). Please let me know what colors you prefer.
  • MusiCover, Italy. Soft padded cases, not suitable for shipping.
  • IKA Hard Case. Fiberglass cases, light-weight but strong, good for theorbos. Prices around 900 €.
