Arciliuto o Tiorba?
kin95 19.08.2017
Come prima cosa ci sarebbe da chiarire che si tratta piuttosto di un Arciliuto anziché di una Tiorba. Interessante notare che anche sul catalogo di corde della Pyramid viene utilizzata la parola "Theorbo" nei set che per la loro accordatura (non rientrante) corrisponderebbero a quelli dell'Arciliuto. Quindi, c'è questa ambiguità per quanto riguarda la denominazione.
Lo strumento è tale e quale potete vederlo in foto. Ci suono sopra da 9 mesi e non ho avuto nessuna sorpresa sgradevole. Funziona e suona in modo soddisfacente.
Le lunghezze vibranti sono: 65 cm per le corde tastate e 104 per la tratta, in perfetta proporzione aurea.
Certamente, e come è normale che sia, bisogna cambiare le corde calcolando diametri, altezze e materiali basandosi su dei criteri pertinenti alle conoscenze sulla prassi della musica antica su strumenti a pizzico. Le corde che
vengono montate (in nylon) non sono, a mio avviso, le corde che meglio si adiscono allo strumento.

High quality for a cheap price

Sound: the sound is clear and of good quality. Since it's a small sized theorbo, it doesn't go as loud as other bigger instruments of the same kind, but the sound is very good nonetheless.

Quality: the overall quality is very good, even though you can see that the manufacturer has been quite scarce on the glue, especially on the 2nd neck. That being said, it's not a problem and the instrument is very playable out of the box (providing you spent two hours tuning it but that's just because it's a theorbo).

The strings aren't that good, they do an honest job but providing yourself with a new set of strings makes the instrument sound 10 times better. They are also quite close to each other, which can sometimes be a tad bit confusing, but once you get used to it it's not much of a problem.

Overall, very happy with the product, even though it's far from perfect, it's still amazingly good considering how cheap its price is. It especially shines when playing solo repertoire, due to the size and shape of it. Great product for beginners and budget-friendly buyers.
