Plain & Veneered

A plain instrument will typically have a neck and pegbox of plum, pear, servicewood, maple or similar, without points or half edging to the soundboard. A veneered instrument will have an ebony veneered neck and pegbox, ebony points and ebony half edging to the soundboard.

Benjamin Narvey

To choose an instrument is to choose a musical companion, one that can help you along your way to achieving your artistic goals. I have always found Martin’s lutes to be amongst the very best companions possible: they are fantastically warm, responsive, balanced, powerful and reliable instruments. Martin is one of the great craftsmen who can seamlessly blend his great knowledge of historical instruments with virtuosic lutemaking skills. I cannot recommend his instruments highly enough.
