Eine Laute zum verlieben
RMB., 08.07.2018
Auf diesem Wege meine Rückmeldung zu der von mir kürzlich gekauften Guitarrenlaute "standard Cypress": Nutzung rein privat zur Live-Balace.
Sound, Verarbeitung, Optik und Haptik erste Klasse. Die Mechanik ist sehr gut und gewährleistet stabile Stimmung. Auch die Saiten halten die Stimmung sehr gut. Die Dauer und die Intensität des Klanges sind vorzüglich. Wer immer etwas gegen die Besaitung hat möge sie wechseln mir gefällt gerade dieser Klang sehr. So wie vor über 40 Jahren, als ich die Freude hatte erstmals eine Laute spielen zu dürfen. Damals begann ich Guitarre zu lernen. Die Verarbeitung der Hölzer und auch die Lautstärke des Instrumentes lassen m.E. nichts zu wünschen übrig. Wie gewohnt bei Thomann auf allen Ebenen beste, höchste Qualität. Die Bässe dieser Laute sind satt und laut, die Mittellage kräftig und die Höhen brilliant, silbrig. Der Klang ist insgesamt etwas runder, weicher als bei Guitarren. Mir gefällt es. Für Renaissense und Barock-Literatur bombig. Aber auch modernes wie Villa-Lobos funktioniert. Die Oberfläche von Korpus, Decke und Hals sind zart und seidig. Man hat den Eindruck es sei unbehandeltes fein-poltiertes Holz. Ein Genuss! Die Größe des Korpus und damit die Abstände für die Zupf-Hand sind wie bei einer 4/4 Guitarre. Die Saiten meiner Laute sind sehr flach eingelegt, was anfänglich zu Schnarren fürhte, da ich recht kräftig in die Saiten griff. Mittlerweile gehe ich behutsamer zu Werke und der Klang ist rein. Die Bundreinheint ist vorhanden, wie bei allen Guitarren die ich bisher bei Thomann kaufte.
Der Service und die Lieferschnelligkeit sind -sofern die Producte auf Lager sind und als "sofort lieferbar" ausgewiesen- wie üblich legendär.
Ich bin voll zufrieden und gebe volle Kaufempfehlung. :))))

Instrument très décevant.
Sanflorain, 24.11.2020
Je voulais essayer cet instrument car la forme est originale, tout en conservant le diapason et l'espacement des cordes propres à une guitare classique (650mm, sillet 50/52mm)
A réception, j'ai été surpris de recevoir l'instrument juste dans une petite housse, avec deux malheureux bouts de papier pour protéger lors du transport, l'instrument n'était pas du tout calé, une chance qu'il soit arrivé entier.

La qualité des bois utilisés est bonne, la table en pin massif d'Engelmann est très belle, le veinage est bien visible. C'est une question de goût, j'aime voir le veinage du bois.

En revanche, là où j'ai été vraiment déçu, c'est le soin apporté aux finitions. Sur certains modèles visibles dans des vidéos, on voit qu'il y a un binding noir sur le côté de la touche. Là, il n'y en a pas, et on voit le sillon des frettes. Ensuite, la tête est peinte en noir, mon modèle était mal peint, il y avait pas mal de bavures. Les sillets sont en plastique gris, et pour 400€, ça laisse un peu le sentiment d'un instrument cheap avec les coûts de productions tirés vers le bas au maximum...

Pour finir, je parlerai brièvement du son. Je me doutais qu'il serait plus faible qu'une guitare classique, mais il est vraiment très pauvre. Aucune basse, pas spécialement de brillance non plus... J'ai l'impression de retrouver le son de la guitare de voyage nylon que j'ai payé 50€.

En bref, les instruments fabriqués au Portugal par APC, c'est fini pour moi. J'ai déjà eu une classique 8 cordes et une 7 cordes fabriquées par eux, et force est de constater que la qualité et le soin sont bien moindres que des instruments made in china comme Harley Benton, qui sont, bien au dessus en terme de rapport qualité prix.

Cet instrument tient plus du jouet que d'autre chose, 399€ me semble être un prix délirant, j'en donnerais maximum 150€.

Roz of Inkoo, 11.10.2019
I play renaissance and early baroque music. I bought this lute guitar hoping it would add or give this "je-ne-sais-quoi" extra that seemed to be missing when I played John Dowland & co with a standard classical guitar. And I got exactly what I had hoped for!
The lute guitar looks very lovely and seems to be well made. Well, one incident happened. The 5th string broke mysteriously,after 3 weeks of use, while the isntrument was at rest. Thomann kindly sent me an extra set of strings, so I was able to repair the damage quite quickly and go on playing.
The beauty of this instrument, in my opinion, lies in the very clear sound of the higher strings... and the very dramatic depth of the bass strings. I cannot achieve such a big contrast between the high and low strings with the guitar. This lute guitar brings me much much closer to the idea of how the real lute music should sound and what the early composers had intended.
The only problem is: How to hold a lute-shaped guitar in a good position when playing? But this is not the instrument's trouble, onlý mine.
(English is not my mother tongue.)
