Welcome to Orlando Lutes

Luke Emmet of Orlando Lutes specialises in high quality, hand made lutes, as well as lute refurbishment and setup and repairs. As an active player as well as maker, I have a passion for making the best sounding renaissance lutes - and I focus on sound quality and playability, first and foremost. Each lute is hand made and individually voiced.

"... I was delighted and impressed by how good this instrument is in every respect: the warm, full sound is well balanced across the registers, the projection is powerful, the instrument is very comfortable to play, and the craftsmanship is remarkable. Luke is clearly at the forefront of the younger generation of lute makers, and I can recommend his instruments without a reservation." - see more reviews
