Vegas, 10.09.2016
Of my best purchases at Thomann, no doubt.

For this price, I expected a Turkish lute with a not very good sonority, poor finishes ... but I wanted to try luck, because the price is not for less.

The day I got home I could not believe it. I had before me a Turkish lute, made in Turkey, with very good (if not perfect) finishes, a simple but dignified model as the most.

The first thing that caught my attention is the color, it is not as reddish as in the photos. In fact, in the back, everything is color wood, with the splinters in wood darker, varnished. The front has a more reddish color, but darker than in the photos. That is, he wins in person.

I had a problem with a rope that came broken, but Thomann was responsible, and in a short time I had a new set of strings at home (yes, stringing this instrument takes time and effort, I recommend looking on the Internet well if you do not know how to do ).

Once the set of strings had been set, tuned and a few days had passed before the tuning was stabilized and the strings were stretched, the instrument was ready to play. It is a delight, the tone it gives is authentic, and if you come from the guitar, it will not take long to get accustomed to the posture and the absence of frets.

Pros:
- Most importantly, the sound.
- Manufacture.
- Friendly.
- Easy to play.
- Maintains fine tuning.

Cons:
- The cover is not padded, and opens from behind, making it a bit difficult to remove and store it. Also, you can not hang the instrument on the back, and also has no handle, just a ribbon to hang it on the shoulder.
- The tuning keeps it good, but it is an instrument that takes time to tune, I guess by the construction and the type of tuners (synthetics).

As I say, it is possibly one of the best purchases I have made on Thomann, and I hope my instrument will last a long time in top form, because I liked it very much.
